A wonderful and unique take on a classic love story.
15 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Amar a morir is an authentic love story set against the striking class structure of present day Mexico. Following a tragic accident, a young man Alejandro (José María de Tavira) rediscovers himself when he meets the beautiful Rosa (Martina García) whilst exiled in a picturesque Michoacán seaside village. Yet when he once again finds himself and his heart at the mercy of a corrupt community leader, who happens to be the local drug lord, his love- inspired fighting spirit shows us that great love defies all obstacles. The beautiful seaside setting adds to the spectacular cinematography that impressively romanticizes the simple way of life of the warm Michoacan people. First time director Fernando Lebrija further shows his promising ability by getting excellent performances out of his impressive cast. The writing cleverly develops deep and authentic back-stories for the characters that were required to engross us in the plight of all three main characters; the boy, the girl yet strikingly also that of the drug lord. It is a wonderful and heart touching portrayal of love and the obstacles we face in holding on to one so true. The memorable final act will move all those with a soft spot for great love to tears whilst at the least leaving a lasting impression on all. The love between Alejandro and Rosa shows what we all search for and seldom find; a love that is unquestioned by past, pain, sin, class and family.
