Miguel Ángel Silvestre,
In Colombia just after the Great War, an old man falls from a ladder; dying, he professes great love for his wife. After the funeral, a man calls on the widow - she dismisses him angrily. Flash back more than 50 years to the day Florentino Ariza, a telegraph boy, falls in love with Fermina Daza, the daughter of a mule trader. Ariza is persistent, writing her constantly, serenading, speaking poetically of love. Her father tries to keep them apart, and then, one day, she sees this love as an illusion. She's soon married to Urbino, a cultured physician, and for years, Ariza carries a torch, finding solace in the arms of women, loving none. After Urbino's fall, are Ariza's hopes delusional?

I read the book few years ago and absolutely loved it! It is one of my favourite books ever so it goes without saying I couldn't wait to see the film! Well, it was the biggest disappointment ever! The actors were awful(how could THAT Fermina look the same at the age of 15 and 50 something?), but the main issue here I reckon it is the fact that there was no need to fit the whole story in just one film. It could have been adapted and it would have worked much better without having to rush the story just to make it to the end of the novel. Those who haven't read the book will find the film boring and will see what I mean by 'rushing the story'. It just doesn't make much sense... In addition, what's the point in having actors of different nationalities speaking all with different English accents? I think it would have worked much better if it was in Spanish! In general, and sadly, I don't think there is anything good to say about the film... Such a good novel deserves a better production on the big screen!
