We're in Jewish Buenos Aires for Daniel Burman's romantic comedy which won best screenplay at this year's Tribeca Film Festival.
Uriel Cohan (Drexler) is a professional poker player for whom every twist and turn in life is a gamble. He's newly divorced, with two cute kids to whom he is devoted. He has an endless succession of difficult girlfriends and he's just about considering the hazardous step of a vasectomy – another roll of the dice – when his life takes a course he had not anticipated.
This is the re-emergence in Buenos Aires of Gloria, Cohan's old girlfriend from before he was married. Gloria, too, has been round the block a bit. She's back home for the funeral of her father and to sort out his house and belongings. She's ready to give Cohan a second chance, but this time she wants commitment – not a word in his vocabulary.
Burman's enjoyable script follows the pair as they get over the inevitable hurdles of love the second time around. There's a jolly rabbi and a twinkly Jewish doctor, too.
