Movie Review: Only Human

Alternate Title: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?

Story: Leni and Rafi are in love. The glitch in their relationship is that he is Palestinian and she is Jewish. In this delightful Spanish farce, husband and wife, writer and director team, Dominic Harari and Teresa Pelegi create laughs galore.

Leni brings Rafi home to meet her family. Each family member is quirkier than the next. There are some slapstick scenes and chaotic mayhem that had our theater audience in belly laughs.

Included in this farce is a mix of dementia, nymphomania, belly dancing, possible patricide and mistaken identity.

It was fun and at times serious. Can this help the Palestinian Israeli conflict. It couldn't hurt.

Acting: Everyone was picture perfect.

Predilection: None

Food: Food was an integral part of the plot.

Soundtrack: Peppy

Theater Audience: A very happy group of movie goers.
