Federico’s plans of breaking up with his girlfriend go wrong after the death of his grandmother. Luckily, the matriarch has left him delicious potato knishes in the freezer. Martin Rejtman, key figure in the New Argentine Cinema, reclaims comedy as a precious motto for this movement, unveiling a theater of juvenile mourning over a fine bedspread made of points of view, cultural differences, national chronicle, class relations and humble existentialism. Or perhaps Shakti is just a menu from a jewish joint.
