What we may well be witnessing here, is the first Puerto Rican film that is being hailed by critics across the United States, and 'to top it all of', the film is also very entertaining and surprisingly funny; not bad for a first time director/writer. Maldeamores is an incredibly funny film that deals with an universal feeling that is as complicated and as mysterious as the human beings who deal with it: love. Much like Inarritu's Amores Perros, the film delves in three different stories that revolve around vibrant characters in realistic settings. Unlike Inarritu's films, these stories never collide with one another, except it's main message. The script is very clever and very well written, always entertaining and fresh. The acting is top-notch. Every cast member is outstanding in this one, especially Miguel Angel, Chavito Marrerro and Silvia Brito. The cinematography and music are also excellent. Overall, this is a must see film. It is a damn shame that it wasn't nominated by the Academy for best Foreign Film of 2007, but the Academy make lousy decisions anyways. A fantastic film, a 9/10.
