Hecho Por México: The Films of Gabriel Figueroa—Enamorada (1946)

31 July 2008 11:14 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Introducing Emilio Fernández‘s Enamorada, Pfa curator Steve Seid admitted that the film’s English translation “Woman In Love” isn’t entirely accurate.  Quoting Judy Bloch’s Pfa capsule, Enamorada speaks more interestingly “about a man in love.” Enamorada—which translates more correctly as “Beloved”, in the sense of a man’s love for his beloved—expresses the love General José Juan Reyes (Pedro Armendáriz) feels for Beatriz Peñafiel (María Félix).  But then again, it’s not only his love for her as a woman but for the civilizing power of the Catholic faith that she represents.  “[W]hat captivates, even mesmerizes, is the film’s portrayal of revolution and religion as conjoined elements of the Mexican character,” Bloch writes.  “The general,” she adds, “confuses Beatriz with Jesus.”
