The Tenth Man (El Rey Del Once)

Daniel Burman’s Spanish-language film, The Tenth Man, depicts the life of an Argentinean Jewish man named Ariel (played by Alan Sabbagh), who after years away is called on by his father to return home to the Jewish neighborhood known as El Once in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Ariel’s father is a macher — a very important person — within their community, so growing up it was difficult for Ariel to develop a close bond with his father because he was hardly around due to his many obligations. The Tenth Man explores the complexities of the father-son relationship as it relates to the main character’s religious upbringing.
