Storyline

Two stories, 14 years apart, converge in a suburb of New York. Manuel Esquema, an international financier, whose face is badly scarred, is flying from Miami to help a New York politician negotiate a plea bargain with the Justice Department. Years before, this financier was a fresh-faced cabaña boy at a Miami Beach resort who fell in love with a young woman on holiday with her husband. The husband is now the pol, and he thinks he dispatched the cabaña boy long ago. What are Esquema's plans: revenge, mercy, or a complicated plan to seek again the woman's love?

Love in the Post Modern Paradox
16 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The intrigue of this movie is"no one will ever love you like this". Fair enough. It's a romance in the classic tradition of love once and forever.

But the romantic rendezvous quickly takes a quirky and complex twist. A twist of fate that is not fully realized or retorted in any satisfying solution. The 14 year development and "downward up-fall" of the two main male characters is woefully thin and without clarity.

There is enough sordid side play and noirish edge to maintain viewer interest but ultimately an unsatisfying and ugly ending lets us down in an odd denouement of devilish melodrama.

The some of the parts do not add up to anything substantial enough to sustain what could have been an exceptional picture puzzle. But the pieces do not fit snuggly together and we are left with a rough, uneven surface to what might have been the Writer/Director's exceptional ode to an era of movie magic he loves. But he unfortunately can not, without compromise, return, and so he is stuck in his own postmodern paradox.
