Miami Jewish Film Festival: Lost Rings and Exploding Toilets in My First Wedding

Page 2 of 2

At the center of the story are Jewish-born Adrián (Daniel Hendler) and Catholic-born Leonora (Natalia Oreiro), ready to celebrate their wedding day. But, ¡sopresa! Nothing goes as planned.

"The story of this movie came about from my actual wedding with Nathalie Cabiron, who is not only my wife of ten years but also my producer, my best friend, and the mother of my child," says Winograd. "When we got married everything went wrong, there were a lot of inconveniences. [The film] was something very, very autobiographical."

Those "inconveniences," just to name a few, involve lost rings, exploding toilets, a bickering priest and a rabbi, and sexy ex-lovers. But, like Adrián says, "Sometimes plans work out better when they get messed up."

Mazel tov.
