Elsa & Fred

Gentle, restrained song-at-twilight love story in which a buttoned-up Madrid widower (Manuel Alexandre) finds his horizons widened when he falls for his elegant but unconventional new neighbor (China Zorrilla). Though its central dynamic of attracted opposites is familiar, director and co-writer Marcos Carnevale's "carpe diem" comedy, which also features Blanca Portillo as the reticent Romeo's controlling daughter, is kept rolling by the verve of its veteran leads. In Spanish. Subtitles. A morally ambiguous relationship. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
