“Mr. Kaplan,” Uruguay’s submission for the 2015 Foreign-Language Oscar, is a comedy about a Jewish retiree living in Uruguay after fleeing Europe because of World War II. When he becomes convinced that a German café owner is a former Nazi, the 76-year-old secretly hatches a plan to kidnap and bring him to justice in Israel. 98 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

“a highly amusing crowd-pleaser.” Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter
