Description: Set in an Italian restaurant in Buenos Aires, Inheritance is the story of the cantankerous Olinda (Rita Cortese), a 60-year-old Italian woman who, as the restaurant's owner, cooks whatever she wants to, regardless of what her customers want to eat. Olinda's plans to sell her home and restaurant are disrupted when Peter (Adrian Witzke) walks into her restaurant and is promptly hit over the head with a plate. As Olinda tries to make amends for the plate incident, Peter, a 24-year-old German who has come to Argentina to look for a girlfriend, forms an unlikely friendship with Olinda, one that affects not only the two of them but also various other people who frequent the restaurant, including Olinda's assistant Angel (Hector Anglada), her trusted confidant Frederico (Martin Adjemian), and Luz (Julieta Diaz), who forms more than just a friendship with Peter. Inheritance was screened at the 2002 Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema.~ Rebecca Flint Marx, All Movie Guide
