The Tenth Man
Directed by Daniel Burman
Award-winning director Daniel Burman returns with The Tenth Man, a well-observed comedy that wrestles with notions of identity, home and the intricacies of the father son relationship. After years away, Ariel returns to Buenos Aires seeking to reconnect with his father Usher, who has founded a charity foundation in Once, the city's bustling Jewish district where Ariel spent his youth. In the process of trying to meet his father and getting entangled in his charitable commitments, Ariel also reconnects with his own Jewish roots.
Usher staves off a meeting with his son; roping him into a number of small assignments, during the course of which Ariel meets Eva, who volunteers for Usher’s charity. Eva's radiant inner strength and independent spirit inspires Ariel to come to grips with the the traditions that once divided him and his father and rethink his own identity. Tenderly, and with a lightness of touch, he has Ariel let go of his old expectations and allow himself to be drawn into the center of a vibrant and fascinating community.
"Extremely funny." -RogerEbert.com
"A teasing parable about fathers and sons and the power of faith." -The New York Times
"Easily the strongest and most pleasurable film I saw [at the Tribeca Film Festival]." -Amy Taubin, Film Comment
“The Tenth Man” is a low-key charmer, an unlooked-for combination of Jane Austen and Isaac Bashevis Singer." -Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"A lighthearted, shaggy-yet-brief charmer with a pleasantly moralistic story that's like Sholem Aleichem by way of Seinfeld." -Andrew Lapin, NPR
Panorama Opening Night, Berlin Film Festival
Winner, Best Actor, Tribeca Film Festival (International Narrative Feature Film)
