Casa de Mi Padre (13-Mar-2012)

Director: Matt Piedmont

Writer: Andrew Steele

Keywords: Comedy

Mexican satire follows a man working on his family's cash-strapped ranch as his brother's shady business dealings lead to all-out war with a drug cartel.

Intended as a spoof of overly-dramatic daytime telenovelas endemic of Latino television networks such as Univision, Casa de Mi Padre -- House of My Father in English -- centers on lifelong family ranch hand Armando Alvarez as financial troubles affecting his father's land lead to the fateful arrival of brother and successful international businessman Raul, whose dubious dealings set the stage for a messy confrontation with high-powered drug lord Onza.
