The Life and Love of a Beautiful Woman
11 July 2007 | by (New York NY) – See all my reviews

Shot the way opera used to be directed - the actors stand and deliver in articulate and gorgeous Spanish. Felix is radiantly beautiful, at least as much as Hedy Lamarr. The photography is b/w with many a shadow and lots of good tonal variation. And if the thespian style is a bit on the raised eyebrow school, that's okay, for it's just so beautiful to hear and look at (which is good - for there are no subtitles on our version). Of course she no more resembles a young man than I do Marilyn Monroe, but that's another operatic convention easily accepted. The minor roles are amusing and well smirked. All in all, an enjoyable costume drama set in colonial Peru, with duels, convents, disguises, flights, flashbacks, and plenty to show off Mexico's leading lady.
