EUROPE ON SCREEN 2013: Superclásico

superclasico2012 Bodil Awards – Winner Best Supporting Actress.
2012 Zulu Awards – Winner Best Actress.

What would you do if your hotshot football agent wife-for-16 years asks for a divorce and moves out to Buenos Aires with her hotshot Argentinian Boca football superstar boyfriend?
If you’re a nearly bankrupt Danish wine expert (but not a life expert) named Christian, you will bring your loner philosophy and photography enthusiast son, Oscar, to a surprise visit to Buenos Aires in hope for a reconcilliation. Christian promptly fails to convince his soon-to-be ex-wife to come home but quickly finds a good local wine bar, a good local wine expert (also a very experienced fellow non-expert in life), and gets drunk. While Oscar turns out to be luckier. He finds a pretty local girl, falls in love, and finally, yes, pops his cherry. Yes, it’s that kind of lightweight feel-bad then feel-good European dramedy.

My Rating: 5/10
