* New this week: Juan Jose Campanella's "Son of the Bride" is a warm and affectionate Argentine film of wide appeal that was an Academy Award nominee in the foreign-language category this year. It stars Ricardo Darin as the 42-year-old proprietor of an upscale Buenos Aires restaurant, and reunites Hector Alterio and Norma Aleandro, stars of the 1985 Oscar-winner "The Official Story," as his parents. Campanella is not interested in plot as much as evoking the everyday lives of his people and how they interact and affect each other. The depth of his concern for them and the loving good humor with which he views them gives his film an infectious emotional richness.
