アルゼンチンババア / 邦画

哀しみを癒してくれたのは、蜂蜜と、マテ茶と、情熱のタンゴ・・・しあわせの魔法に心癒され、明日への元気がじんわり湧き上がる。 原作はよしもとばななの傑作小説。役所広司、鈴木京香、堀北真希ら、日本映画界を代表する俳優陣が共演! 仲の良かった3人の家族。イルカの島で過ごした楽しい思い出を残し、大好きだった母が死んだ。母を愛し、仕事一筋だった墓石彫りの父はなぜかその日に限って病院に姿を出さず、突然、姿を消してしまった。半年後、父は変わり者の女の人の屋敷で発見された。そこは広い草原にぽつんと佇む小さな田舎町のなかの異国。昔はタンゴやスペイン語を教えていたらしいが、今はちょっと頭がおかしくなって怪しい呪文を唱えているとみんなが噂する謎の"アルゼンチンババア"。母親の供養もほったらかして、父がそんな人のもとに!? 一人娘のみつこは勇気を奮い起こし、父親奪還に向かうのだが・・・。 特典DISCには、メイキング、劇場予告、TVスポット集、他収録予定。
