Film Review: ‘Paradise’

4 November 2013 7:25 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Standing out amid this year’s Mexican festival fare, which tended toward the gritty and the challenging, “Paradise,” a sophomore effort from helmer-writer Mariana Chenillo (“Nora’s Will”), is as soft, sweet and insubstantial as a marshmallow. Centering on an overweight couple whose move from the middle-class suburbs to Mexico City tests their steady, loving relationship, this mainstream romantic comedy suffers from sitcom-style tonal shifts that reflect Chenillo’s recent experience helming the second season of TV hit “Soy tu fan.” Although it lacks the same crossover credentials as “Nora,” it should please the undemanding end of the arthouse spectrum in Spanish-lingo territories.

Unfolding from a female point of view, this wistful, true-love-conquers-all fantasy raises any number of issues, including how to fit (literally and metaphorically) into a place that is very different from the one you grew up in, and how to overcome the fear of change and find fulfillment. »
