A beautiful and touching movie, despite the melodrama
12 July 2005 | by (Manizales, Colombia) – See all my reviews

If you are someone who dislikes slow-paced movies, you shouldn't try this piece. But if, instead, you enjoy simple stories, based on a good plot, this one may suit you. Plus, It has some important cultural and historical relevance (not only due to its antiquity but also because it is firmly ligated to colombian culture of the time).

I come from a region closely related to that depicted in the movie and I had never felt so moved by a film. As most movies produced in the early XX century, the story is based on romantic melodrama, but this one was banned for more than 50 years because it defied catholic church, a traditional and very powerful authority in Colombia. The story is quite advanced for its time and the punctual scenarios take you to the magical realism of Gabriel García Máquez, but not on the coast yet into the mountains.

I totally recommend this movie; lucky you if someday you have the chance to watch it.
