Sebastián Borensztein's Un cuento chino (A Chinese Tale), which won Argentina's Academy 2011 award for Best Picture, Actor, and Actress, will be screening at 7 p.m. Friday, January 27 at Instituto Cultural de México (600 Hemisfair Plaza). The movie, starred by Ricardo Darín (last seen in San Antonio in the Oscar-winning The Secret In Their Eyes), tells the story of the owner of a hardware store who ends up living with a Chinese immigrant in Buenos Aires. The problem: neither speaks each other's language. The comedy of errors gets complicated when a cow falls off the sky, but that's as much as we're going to give away. Spanish with English subtitles.

Admission is free, and you can park on S Durango or at the parking lot at S Alamo next to Beethoven Hall.
