A personal drama in a historic moment of Spain.
11 July 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

In this film we have a historic drama in which the passion that "Juana de Castilla", daughter of the Catholic Monarchs and heir the throne, by her husband, "Felipe el Hermoso", sovereign of the Netherlands and the son of Maximilian of Austria and Mary of Burgundy, it will not be reciprocated, since this prefers adventures with other women, and the accidental death of this accelerate the process of madness of Juana, a consequence of the infidelities marriage. It is a good movie director Juan de Orduña, in which is much the influence of the theater in its actors, some of the proceedings as Aurora Bautista "Juana de Castilla" being good performance , fit better in theatrical works. There is an excellent photography of José F. Aguayo, as was expected, also i liked the music of Juan Quintero, who accompanies very well scenes and situations. The decorated and dressing rooms are very good, no doubt that in color had emphasized very much. Fernando Rey and Jorge Mistral they make excellent interpretations, and draws attention to the beauty of Sara Montiel by her youth. Concluding , "Locura de amor" is a film that counting a personal tragedy, the queen "Juana de Castilla",tells one of the historical episodes of greater importance in the history of Spain. A film that must be view.
