Director: Daniel Burman
“There's something of late period Woody Allen about Empty Nest's combination of tricksy plot structure, writerly self-consciousness and intelligent romantic comedy with a bitter edge.” - Screen International
From one of Latin America's most celebrated filmmakers, Daniel Burman (Every Stewardess Goes to Heaven, MIFF 03), Empty Nest brings palpable warmth and a deft lightness of touch to an examination of married life after children have flown the coop.
Traversing the rocky terrain of middle age, Burman delves blithely into the malaise of marriage stripped bare, when there's nothing left to distract us from each other.
“Laugh out loud funny even while its nostalgic scenes bring tears to the eye.” - Toronto Film Festival
