All for One

This broad comedy from Colombia has the swift pacing and loopy logic of a 30s screwball picture, and its sunny tone feels refreshingly old-fashioned too. Having decided to settle down, a rich and hopelessly naïve womanizer (Santiago Alarcón) starts vetting potential brides, clueless to the fact that his devoted assistant (Jessica Cediel) is his true soul mate. The two leads maintain a sexy, breezy rapport in the Astaire-and-Rogers tradition; their energetic screen personas make up for the bare-bones mise-en-scene, as do the breakneck wordplay and narrative complications. Harold Trompetero directed a script he cowrote with Jeiver Pinto. In Spanish with subtitles.
