An inspired comedy from writer-director team of Teresa de Pelegri and Dominic
Harari, Only Human grew out of the three obsessions shared by the couple: sex,
family and the Middle East.
Leni (Marian Aguilera) arrives home to introduce her fiance Rafi (Guillermo Toledo) to her Jewish family for the first time. Everything goes wonderfully until they reveal that Rafi is Palestinian. With his future mother-in-law (veteran actor Norma Aleandro) unhinged by the news, Rafi offers to take over in the kitchen. But he accidentally drops a frozen soup out of a seventh floor window, hitting a pedestrian below. As if the evening`s not going badly enough, it turns out the pedestrian may be Leni`s father.
Putting an ingenious spin on the meet-the-parents genre, husband and wife team - a neat adjunct to the film`s theme of family and cohabitation - de Pelegri and Harari have delivered a hilarious and beautifully performed comedy of errors that also acts as a pin-sharp observation on the absurdities of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and of intolerance in general.
