Movie Summary

Released:

Rating:
R
Only Human, released in 2006, is an 85 minute Spanish-language jaunt into the lives of Rafi (Guillermo Toledo), a Palestinian, and Leni (Marian Aguilera), a Jewish woman, as they fall in love, become engaged, and then meet their prospective in-laws for the first time. It almost becomes a shotgun wedding as the blind grandfather (Max Berliner) carelessly swings his Palestinian Army rifle around the room. Ravi will fear for his life if the prejudiced grandfather finds out he's Muslim. Things get weirder when Rafi accidentally drops a block of frozen soup out of a window and thinks he has killed his future father-in-law, the mom Gloria (Norma Aleandro) has roller coaster emotions, Rafi's trigger finger nervousness and jitters making him apprehensive, and Leni's brother putting a duck in the toilet. Leni also has a lot of tension brewing as she argues constantly with her much prettier sister. This film echoes Meet the Parents and exhibits the quirkiness of Meet the Tenenbaums, but in the Spanish language.moreless

    Mines the comic possibilities of the classic setup of introducing the fiancé to the family, with results that are playful, charming and surprisingly thoughtful.
