FILM DLYA KARLOSA FILM FOR CARLOS
A visit with the in-laws: What could be worse for a blissed-out young father? When the in-laws are also citizens of the Russian fatherland to boot, while the camera-toting daddy’s native tongue is Spanish and the baby isn’t named Aljoscha either, but Carlos instead? For this little one, “Karluschka”, the director/papa wanted, in his own words, to capture the “ludicrous and awkward” new family configuration, against a backdrop of jingoism and affectionate marital sparring. Sharp tongues, cunningly edited.
