Expect the unexpected—nothing is cliché in this perfectly-paced comedy-drama set at a countryside wedding. Daniel Sanchez Arevalo directs Spain’s top box office stars, who switch easily from high emotion to broad comedy in a beautifully romantic Spanish landscape pulsating in the summer sunlight. Spain’s national soccer team is playing in the World Cup final; the youngest of five brothers is getting married to his very pregnant childhood sweetheart; family and friends are gathered at the family ranch in the mountains outside Madrid for both festivities; the weather is perfect; and the wedding party dances up the aisle—the stage is set for a vibrant, funny, tender film about the power of family that is sure to be enjoyed by anyone who savors the good life.
