Either Do What You Should Do or Do What You Want or Just Sit Down
8 June 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Eduardo Mignogna's 'Cleopatra' may bear some resemblance to 'Thelma and Louise'. In both movies the two leads are frustrated with their current life and so they embark on a roadtrip. That's where the similarities end. 'Cleopatra' is much more toned down and restrained. It has a more poetic feel to it while 'Thelma and Louise' is more suspenseful and energetic. With photogenic cinematography of the stunning landscape and a whimsical soundtrack, the movie is pleasing to look at.

The writing is also quite down to earth and Mignogna does a fine job as director. He's storytelling is quite smoothe and he balances comedy and intensity with skill, never allowing the film to lose its whimsical edge. A beautiful Natalia Oreiro and Leonardo Sbaraglia are very good. Héctor Alterio is darkly funny as a lazy slacker husband.

'Cleopatra' mainly works because it has heart and the heart of Cleopatra is Norma Aleandro. Her sequences provide the best moments of the film, whether it's the funniest or most intense. Easily, she's a scene stealer and a joy to watch. Notice when she's talking to the camera, it really is if she's speaking to you.

'Cleopatra' is another movie that showcases Aleandro's talent. It's like a breath of fresh air in the countryside. It's a joy to watch.
