All In

Dir: Daniel Burman, with Jorge Drexler and Valeria Bertucelli

    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.
