Fred is recently widowed, and Elsa is --- well, she's Elsa, as you'll find out throughout this charming Spanish-Argentinian film production. Their chance encounter becomes the centerpiece for a series of delightful events that bring them closer to each other. As the story plays out, don't be surprised if you find yourself feeling as if you are an "unseen guest" to a blossoming relationship that will inspire, amuse, and sadden you.
The cast is superb. The two leads (Manuel Alexandre & China Zorrilla) seem so natural in their roles, and that heightens the dramatic impact of this endearing story.
In fact, we are going to see it again today at the same theater with friends.

Very happy it is out on DVD now.
Makes for a great gift to share with older friends to remind them
that life can still be fun and fulfilling after sixty.
If you enjoyed Life Is Beautiful and La Vie En Rose ... this is a no brainer.
The acting is outstanding.
YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO BE YOUNG
that it is never too late to find passion and love. Viva el amor!
There is a wonderful contrast between the children / grandchildren and Elsa / Fred. The daughter and husband that constantly yell at eachother and fight, in contrast with the father that is so calm and soft spoken. The calm son who takes control in contrast to the mother that is constantly lying and outspoken.
From a film standpoint, this is a moderately well produced film. The initial hour lopes along and could have been cut considerably. There are many moments of discontinuity where the following action didn't make a lot of sense. This is mostly evidence of a director cutting to achieve a film length, but forgetting he left story elements without context. The filming was just adequate, camera work was pretty basic. The exterior shots were particularly well filmed. Dialog was clear.
The film is presented with locked subtitles and Spanish dialog. There is no language selection. There are no special features.
This is mostly a PG film. There is no nudity. No significant foul language translated to the subtitles. No violence. And the subject of these two older people being together is dealt with in a subtle romantic, not erotic, fashion.
A tender, lovely film. The film is about 30 minutes too long, which keeps it from a perfect five star rating.
