Bárbara Mori's Motion Picture Debut., 4 February 2005
Author: BigHardcoreRed from Calimesa, California

Bárbara Mori stars in her motion picture debut as Alejandra. Alejandra is the object of desire of Gabriel (Arath de la Torre), whom he sees by chance at a nightclub while on a blind date his friend set up for him. Gabriel knows nothing about Alejandra except for her name, which he asked her before she made a hasty exit.

Afterwards, Gabriel is consumed by her and can not stop thinking of her. He writes some poetry or verses to a song he is trying to write about her, which is why I guess this movie is called Inspiración (or Inspiration in English). Eventually, Gabriel runs into Alejandra again and this time, he follows her to her home and actually meets her. Soon they are dating but Gabriel wants more of the relationship than Alejandra, and it ends before it really gets started. The rest of the movie is spent with Gabriel chasing Alejandra around trying to win her over.

This movie, in reality, is a romance, or as I have heard it put here, something like a Mexican soap opera (I have never seen one so I can not say for myself). It tries to be a comedy as much as a romantic story but falls hard in that category. I laughed out loud once. Thankfully, it did not rely on the comedy to keep the viewer interested.

Truthfully, I watched this movie only because Bárbara Mori is in it. I may as well be as smitten as Gabriel was but I have only seen her in Maxim magazine and wanted to see her act, which she does quite well. Hopefully, we will see more of Bárbara in the coming years as she has the beauty and the talent to become successful.

Arath de la Torre was a decent actor, but his attempts a comedy were extremely forced, such as in Who's Your Daddy. It was a little over the top and the whole story was missing something I can not quite put my finger on. Worth a rental if you do not mind subtitles. 6/10
