Storyline

First we hear then we see, in black and white, an argument between a man and woman. In a series of flashbacks in color, we see them meet, marry, and expect a child soon after. He turns abusive: he's Joaquín, an ad executive with a temper; she's Angela, a receptionist when they meet. The relationship unravels as each incident is more damaging. Angela's friend and confident is the wife of Joaquín's boss, so their problems spill into his work. He refuses to seek help. As he gets more threatening, the law does little. Is one or the other's death the only way this can end? And the flashbacks, where do they originate? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A decent film about domestic abuse
7 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a decent film about domestic abuse with the final conclusion that you don't hit the ones you love. Period. There is also a fair amount of social commentary concerning the weak laws that protect abused women from their husbands, especially when a child is involved.

What is scary is that people still think that it is OK for a husband to beat his wife in this day and age. That is not love. The previous comment on this page mentioned that the film showed the husband to be completely at fault. He is. She smokes while she is pregnant. That is a terrible thing to do, but it does not warrant how he beats her, kicks her while she is on the ground, gives her black eyes and slams her head into the cupboards.

Normally I would say that this film is sad, but trite. However after seeing the post before mine, perhaps much of the world hasn't yet figured out that domestic abuse can never be justified. You don't hit the ones you love.
