The photograph triggers jealousy: he questions Carmen, Carman's friend Cinta, and his friend Luis who introduced him to Carmen. Cinta tells Antonio the man's first name. Carmen tells him that the man meant nothing to her, and that the photograph was taken before she met Antonio. She loves Antonio and sets out to wipe the photograph from his mind through exuberant sex, but her ploy backfires and Antonio remains fixated.

Intense and heart-rending drama about jealousy that leads to tragic consequences
1 December 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Solid film dealing with jealousy , passions , treason , sexual intrigues and an extraordinary acting by the main cast . Concerning a deep love story who transformed a pair of hard-working people , an orange factory labourer called Carmen (Aitana Sanchez Gijon) and a truck driver called Antonio (Daniel Jimenez Cacho) , both of whom about to marry themselves . The two were "the inseparables¨ , a happy couple , but spontaneously emerges a demon : ¨jealously¨ . A month before he's to marry Carmen , Antonio encounters a picture of a good-looking young in swimming trunks with his arm on her shoulder . The photograph triggers jealousy : he questions Carmen, Carman's friend Cinta (Maria Botto) , and his friend Luis (Luis Tosar) who introduced him to Carmen . Cinta tells Antonio the man's first name and Antonio subsequently investigates . Carmen tells him that the man meant nothing to her , and that the picture was taken before she met Antonio . She loves Antonio and sets out to wipe the photograph from his mind through lies and kinky sex . Slowly Antonio finds out about the man , and about Carmen's dark past. There takes place the wedding , but jealously goes on . Now a bitter , resentful as well as deceived husband attempts to find a way to resolve the sad truth that consumes their marriage . Furthermore , he proceeds a particular vendetta until a breathtaking ending .

Solid but downbeat drama by Vicente Aranda mostly filmed in city of Valencia and surroundings . It is a peculiar story of love , lies and jealousy with an intrigue behind . This interesting as well as intimate story is a passionate retelling and a touching drama , including strong as well as exuberant sex scenes . Vicente Aranda also writes the script along with Alvaro Del Amo based on their own story and being filmed in his usual formal and stylistic scholarship , without leaving a trace the thought-provoking issues , in terms of dramatic and narrative excitement . The main problem has to face "Jealousy¨, beyond not being able to avoid falling into a claustrophobic drama is precisely derived from the coldness of its staging , which eventually become monotonous and heart-breaking over 100 minutes and some of footage . Very good acting by duo protagonist such as Daniel Jimenez Cacho as Antonio , a man now broke and ill turned into a green-eyed monster ,and Aitana Sanchez Gijon as Carmen who wants to be in love with him , she overcomes with sentimentality and takes Antonio under her reins but her ploy backfires and he remains fixated on jealously . The secondary actors were very intelligent chosen and they all did a marvelous performance . As support cast is frankly magnificent such as María Botto , Alicia Sánchez , Pepo Oliva , Carlos Kaniowsky , Itziar Miranda , Aitor Merino and special mention to Luis Tosar , previously his successful Celda 211 so that became to him a first star . Spotless pictorial though sometimes dark cinematography by Jose Luis Alcaine , Pedro Almodovar's usual, he carries out a photography with juicy atmosphere , being filmed in Valencia and Bilbao , though wastes the scenario of these gorgeous cities . Jose Luis Alcaine is deemed to be one of the best Spanish cameramen with a long and prestigious artistic career and Almodovar's ordinary cameraman , he has photographed successes such as ¨Volver¨ , ¨The bad education¨ , ¨The skin I live in¨ , and ¨Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown¨ . Furthermore , a willingness almost perfect of the elements of each shot , every sequence , every space . Sensitive and rousing musical score by Jose Nieto , Aranda's usual , including an enjoyable leitmotif . The flick had limited success , but is considered to be Aranda's one of the best .

The motion picture was compellingly produced by two great producers , Fernando Bovaira , Jose Luis Escolar ; being professionally directed in his particular style by veteran filmmaker Vicente Aranda . He directed a series of award-winning movies firmly establishing him as one of the best Spanish filmmakers . His usual film editor is own wife , Teresa Font . Vicente is an expert on literary adaptations ,as he has adapted four novels by Juan Marsé (Canciones Amor en Lolita's Club (2007), El Amante Bilingüe (1993), Si Te Dicen Que Caí (1989) and La Muchacha De Las Bragas De Oro (1980). Vicente often shoots strong erotic scenes , being ¨jealousy¨, a customary issue in his films . Vicente has been working from the 60s with ¨Fata Morgana¨ , Las Crueles¨ , ¨Novia Ensangrentada¨ , ¨Clara es el Precio¨ , among others . His greatest successes were intense dramas with plenty of sex such as ¨Amantes¨, ¨Pasion Turca¨ , ¨Si Dicen Que Cai¨ , ¨Intruso¨ , ¨Tiempo De Silencio¨ , ¨Carmen¨ , along with a delinquency tale : ¨El Lute¨ I and II starred by Imanol Arias , his fetish actor along with Victoria Abril (They have worked together 12 times) and specially the historical story titled ¨Juana La Loca¨ also dealing with jealousy . Rating : Better tan average . Well worth watching .
