LIFE IN BUENOS AIRES

 

After a successful return of the popular Cine Latino film series last week, the University of Lincoln is to continue the club with the next exciting instalment.

 

The next movie in the series, to be showcased next week, is the Argentinian film ‘El Hijo de la Novia’, translated as ‘The Son of the Bride’.

 

Nominated for a Foreign Language Film Academy Award in 2001, the movie stars Ricardo Darin (Nine Queens) as Rafael, a man who operates a restaurant once owned by his parents, Nino and Norma.

 

The film follows how Rafael's life changes through a series of events that happen to him and his family, and forms one of the most refreshing comedies of the last few years.

 

It contains some hilarious dialogue and showcases, in a not-so-stereotypical way, how people from Buenos Aires speak and behave.

 

‘The Son of the Bride’ is in Spanish with English subtitles.

 

The film series, which forms part of the final-year subject matter for European Business and Marketing students, has gained continued interest not only among students but also among Lincoln residents.

 

“We’ve had a great turn-out to films showcased in the series so far, with previous screenings attracting around 180 people a night,” said the university’s English languages co-ordinator Andy Daglish.

 

The film will be screened in the university’s Jackson Lecture Theatre at 7pm on Monday 6th December.

 

Both students and residents of the city are welcome to attend, and entry is free to all showings.
