Lili's Apron (87:02)

FREE PREVIEW

Directed by Mariano Galperin. This is the love story of Ramón and his wife Lili, whose life together is dramatically impacted by Argentina's abrupt economic crisis. When Ramón, a chef in a restaurant, is laid off and all efforts to find alternative income fail, their furniture is reposessed, their family life is disrupted, and Ramón must cope with his wife's nervous breakdown. Out of both a sense of responsibility and panic, he devises a desperate, income-generating plan but hides its implications from Lili. Mariano Galperin approaches the poverty and social disintegration among ordinary people with humor and charm, balancing the story on the edge of very dark satire. With strong images of the dismantled capital accompanied by a powerful soundtrack, Lili’s Apron captures a troubled society where unlikely events have become part of everyday life. Country of production: Argentina. (With English subtitles.)
