An unsuccessful Danish businessman pursues his estranged wife to Argentina in this sparky tale of marital discord. Part wry romantic comedy and part love letter to Buenos Aires, it offers cheerfully non-PC entertainment for those who appreciate fine wine, fanatical soccer fans, steamy Latin lovers and the tango, while amusing on a meta-level by celebrating and satirizing its own sense of cliché. Pudgy sadsack Christian owns a failing wine shop whose stock he dips into with increasing frequency while moping over runaway wife Anna. A tough-as-nails sports agent, Anna now lives in Buenos Aires and wants to marry her star client, buff soccer striker Juan Diaz, a cheerful fellow given to wandering his gorgeous villa in the nude. An arch voice-over commentary by an unseen narrator gently mocking the characters and their feelings and advising viewers about their hidden thoughts supplies the backbone for a playful layer of meta-fiction. Christian’s dialogue, too, plays a part, as he declares just about everything in Argentina, including Anna’s relationship with the hot, younger Juan Diaz (un caso clasico), to be a cliché.
