Description: Spanish comedian Pablo Carbonell wrote, directed, and stars in this lighthearted story of a simple man facing the sudden onset of responsibility. Manuel (Pablo Carbonell) is a cheerful but less than brilliant fisherman who searches for catch along the southern coast of Spain with his friends Perra (Pedro Reyes) and El Cherif (Antonio Dechemt). The fishing business hasn't been very good for Manuel and his pals in recent years, and as Manuel tries to decide what to do with himself, his girlfriend, María (Maria Barranco), and their son, Manolin (Andres Rivera), announce that some changes are in order. María has been involved with Manuel for nearly ten years, and she's decided it's time to get married, while Manolin expresses a keen interest in joining the Catholic church, which comes as a surprise to Manuel, given his clearly espoused atheism. As Manuel ponders Manolin's sudden interest in the church, he resigns himself to the upcoming nuptials, and with his friends, he hatches a plan to obtain a great tuna for the wedding feast. Atún y Chocolate was screened as part of the 2004 Los Angeles Latino Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
