Reviews
ReviewSource The Observer
Review The Spanish film, Only Human (aka Seres Queridos) from the husband-and-wife team of Teresa De Pelegri and Dominic Harari, is a fitful farce concerning a Jewish girl bringing her Israeli fiance home to meet the parents. He holds an Israeli passport, but is in fact a Palestinian teaching Arabic literature at Barcelona university. The girl's mother is neurotic, her sister promiscuous, her young brother fanatically orthodox, her eight-year-old niece pretends to be pregnant, and her blind grandfather is a Holocaust survivor still in possession of the loaded Lee-Enfield rifle he wielded in 1948 Palestine.

ReviewSource The Guardian
Review A spirited Spanish farce replete with gross misunderstandings, eccentric characters, unfortunate coincidences and hastily constructed cover stories - it's the sort of thing Basil Fawlty might get into if he'd married Manuel's sister...Sister Tania is a highly sexed single mother with a long-held suspicion that her mother favours Leni. Their brother has chosen to embrace the more orthodox side of Judaism, and since this is the Sabbath, he goes around the house taping over light switches and hiding people's phones. The set-up is all too transparently primed for hilarity, but it does at least deliver the laughs with regularity.

Gene Seymour, Newsday Think of it as Guess Who's Coming to Dinner as directed by a combination of Billy Wilder and Pedro Almodovar.
Laura Kern, New York Times A vigorously paced modern screwball comedy with a refreshingly light touch.
V.A. Musetto, New York Post A manic Spanish farce that moves briskly, with several laugh-out-loud moments.
