To Life

In this wistful 2007 debut feature by Shai Agosin, a Mexican photographer (the sultry Ana Serradilla) visits her native Chile to settle some long-standing grievances with her estranged, 80-year-old father. But the young woman's restless, impulsive sexuality pulls her into an affair with the local rabbi (Francisco Melo), a married man who is also her father's teacher. Veteran Argentinean actor Jose “Pepe” Soriano gives a warm, seemingly effortless performance as the father, who still rues the day he left his wife; his quiet remorse in reviewing the events of his life lends this Chilean drama much of its emotional resonance. In Spanish with subtitles. 100 min.
