In a year in which Roberto Benigni's Oscar-winning "Life Is Beautiful" got most of the attention among foreign-language films, American audiences most likely didn't even have a chance to see other nominees from that category. Among them was Jose Luis Garci's sweetly contemplative film "The Grandfather" ("El Abuelo"), which finally opens in U.S. theaters today. Better late than never for the film and its 56-year-old director.

There's more than a whiff of "The Cherry Orchard" permeating Jose Luis Garci's "The Grandfather," a rueful, funny and deeply moving fable in which a curmudgeonly old aristocrat must chose between love and honor. An Oscar nominee for best foreign-language film of 1998, the period tale stars the formidable veteran Fernando Fernan-Gomez in a great role that crowns a long and distinguished career.

But having been nurtured as an actor in Europe, Banderas wanted to return to the subtler, slower-paced films that star-making studios normally don't make.
