Who Is Abel?

Can a father's departure cause a son's muteness and also provoke laughs? That is both the premise and hope of Diego Luna's "Abel," now featured at the Cannes Film Festival. Luna, awaiting the newborn who will grow into partnership with his current two year old to drive him crazy, has written and directed the tale of how a Mexican father's absence creates a situation for his son to first not say a word, but then start talking the talk of the missing man of the house.
