Storyline

Mike is romantic and persistent, a social worker at a psychiatric clinic who falls for a new intern. Gabriela is passionate; she's also engaged; although her love for her fiance Patrick seems more fraternal than erotic, she has an overwhelming sense of obligation to marry him. Mike gets dubious counsel from a colleague, Douglas, who's seems to have a new relationship weekly, and from his unhappy brother. She gets advice from her supervisor, whose long-term marriage ended badly. Gabriela can't seem to say no to Mike, except when he asks her to end her engagement. She heads home to Mexico to introduce Patrick to her family. What's Mike to do? Will anything change her mind? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Excellent Independent Film
11 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the way independent films were meant to be. Far for the small blood-lusting crowd of people aching to see yet another body part be sliced away in a new "art" film, "Gabriela" delivers a great story with real characters.

Clearly made for very little money, "Gabriela" delivers the look and feel of a "real" movie which in these days of amateurish-looking videos passing as films is high praise indeed.

But it delivers much more: great acting, a compelling story that actually feels real and heartfelt and a wonderfully evocative music score.

People who are lucky enough to discover this gem will remember for a long time a number of the great little moments of the film.

Hopefully, a harbinger of better things to come in independent films, "Gabriela" made me feel that keeping an eye out for new releases wasn't a complete waste of time.
