Amada
25 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Although absolutely stilted with soap opera clichés and dialogue, the best thing I found about this film was it's lush cinematography. Livio Delgado certainly knows how to light and shoot people to startling effect. As for the story, well, An unhappily married woman finds solace with her cousin while her husband fools around with the maid, meanwhile, a family battle is brewing about their soon-to-be-dead mother's estate. The dialogue is NOTHING you would hear from anyone's mouth except in movies like this, people talking religion vs the state, liberals vs conservativism... in love scenes! It's alright, if you can get past the stilted dialogue and whatnot :)
