Please join us May 10th for the COMING OF AGE FILM FESTIVAL screening of Elsa y Fred


Elsa y Fred

Directed by Marcos Carnevale

PG | 1h 48min | Comedy, Drama, Romance | Argentina, 2005

Theme: Romance

View Trailer (the screening at MOPA will have English subtitles)

A fender bender on a Madrid street brings together 78-year-old Alfredo (Manuel Alexandre), a widowed hypochondriac, and Elsa (China Zorrilla), close in age to Alfredo but as free-spirited as he is uptight. The unlikely pair begin a late-life romance, with Elsa tempting the man she renames “Fred” into such daring acts as ordering a hugely expensive meal at a restaurant and skipping out on the check. Alfredo in turn decides to make the one great wish of Elsa’s life come true.
