A pretty good movie overall but with too many loose ends. So what that Uriel loses his clothes.
What was that all about? Looks like a scene that might have had some relevance in the director's mind at some point, but then he forgot exactly what to do with it. Ok, Uriel tells his mom, but not his wife, about the prize. Is that significant? Maybe, but what seems like a dramatic moment isn't developed. Oh, a possible affair for the father who barely talks or leaves his workspace at home or in the library? Maybe, but what seems like a dramatic possibility isn't developed, and even the idea is completely at odds with the father's character. The basic story line is compelling - the tension between a son who succeeds in the same field in which his father has unsuccessfully struggled for years. And you can empathize with the emotional tensions that exist. But too many devices that are played to inconsistent or irrelevant effect. Worth seeing with moderate expectation.
