amar a morir?
28 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If there is something I like to avoid while watching movies is the exaggerated melodrama that is so irritating in soap operas. Only to find that this movie presents all of the ingredients that are present in the worst soap operas. But only worst. It lacks verisimilitude. The man that was run over by the main character feels that fell from the sky. And its this same logic that exists in the movie. Suddenly this "supposedly rich kid" is in a small town by the sea. Again, it feels like he fell from the sky into this town. Suddenly he is speaking English with an Australian surfer. And teaching a lady to drive. And having to stay in this paradise with a beautiful women because he has no car. And speaking Italian, showing off by telling her that he will invite her to Rome. Suddenly, he is stalking her and escaping from gangsters and bullets. But the worst. The story shifts and starts to focus in "el tigre" the gangster, the girl's "dad-lover" and in the main character dad. There was never a journey or love story (they are together barely minutes and this is supposedly what moves the movie) only capricious turns of luck until finally they die (which the title clearly indicates). I could go on and on. There are some interesting glimpses of the main character relationship with male figures, but they are eclipsed by all the confusion and violence and even by the love story or maybe the other way around: the love story is eclipsed by his relationship with male figures and the violence they make, also by the main character suicidal attitude. I don't know. Its bad. At least it could be a good soap opera.
