Choices and Consequences
8 March 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Mexico, Rosario (Rosario Granados) has a marriage of convenience without love with her husband Don Carlos Montero (Julio Villarreal), who is a rigid and conservative antiquarian older and older than she. When Don Carlos punishes their son Carlitos (Jaime Calpe) without listening to him, the boy runs away from home. The engineer Julio Mistral (Tito Junco) finds Carlitos and brings him home, becoming a family friend. Soon Rosario and Julio fall in love with each other and have a love affair. Julio invites Rosario to move with him to Brazil with Carlitos but Don Carlos has a heart attack on the day that they would be traveling. Rosario sacrifices her true love to stay with Don Carlos and Carlitos.

Many years later, Carlos (Joaquín Cordero) and his younger brother Miguel (Javier Loya) are graduated in medicine and love the same woman, Luisa (Elda Peralta). They both plan to rent a building for a medical clinic and work together. Out of the blue, a notary that is friend of the family tells that Julio has died and left his fortune to Miguel that was chosen by Luisa. The envious and male chauvinist Carlos questions the fidelity of his mother and the biological origin of his brother.

"Una mujer sin amor", a.k.a. "A Woman Without Love", is a movie directed by Luis Buñuel with a melodramatic story of a woman that needs to choose between her true love and her family and the consequences of her choice in a chauvinist society. The gossips have never reached Carlos Montero or Miguel, but the weak and detestable Carlos. The conclusion can be easily understood by Latinos, with the brothers making up. My vote is seven.
