Acting is the better life
24 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Jean Renoir, the masterful creator of such films as Les Regles du Jeu and La Grande Illusion tries his hand at a period piece, set in Spanish ruled Latin America, filmed in English with American and Italian actors. The memorable performance of the film was by its star Anna Magnani as Camilla, an Italian actress who has come to perform with her troupe and is courted by 3 men, a captain in the army, a sports hero matador and the viceroy. Of course the viceroy, with his offer of the Golden Coach starts to win out over the others. We are deftly led through the court life with its jealousies, backbiting, and hypocrisy. Acting is a passion though, even when an actor is considered an outcast. The ending ties together the message of the film as we see Camilla make her choice. The film in interesting and compelling if not powerful.

This movie is like this interesting meat pastry that I ate at Sabor Latino in Ann Arbor. Sabor Latino is a cheap, delicious little place on main street that serves Latin American food. I ate this Puerto Rican dish that is made from banana meal that is filled with savory chunks of meat with a delicious sauce and then deep fried. The plantains add an interesting light element to the dish, which is very good. It was filling, different and expertly prepared, but it will not become my favorite dish there (It's hard to beat melted cheese). 6.5/10 http://blog.myspace.com/locoformovies
