An Unexpected Love

El Amor Menos Pensado

Mercedes Morán and Ricardo Darín, two of Latin American cinema’s best-loved performers, co-star in Juan Vera’s smart romantic comedy

“Comedies like this are rare – not just for the mature age range, but for the wisdom packed into the observation... a sophisticated comedy” - The Sunday Age

The departure of their son to study abroad inspires a crisis of identity in first-time empty nesters Ana (Mercedes Morán) and Marco (Ricardo Darín). After almost three decades of marriage, Ana and Marco reluctantly admit – to themselves and each other – that something has shifted in their dynamic as a couple. They amicably agree to separate, but their empathy and optimism is put to the test when each begins to explore life beyond the safety and familiarity of their relationship.
