What a waste of time!!
24 September 2009 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I generally prefer watching Latin American movies and not Hollywood hits, because occasionally, I have seen unrecognized masterpieces, and in most cases the viewer gets in touch with interesting characters, situations and feelings. Unfortunately, this was not the case with "Amorosa Soledad". It is a boring movie, forcing us to spend all time watching uninteresting details of the daily life of a neurotic, hypochondriac girl named Soledad. It seems that during the first half an hour or so, the most interesting event of the story, is the blocking of the toilet, which leads Soledad to use the bidet instead of asking a plumber to fix it. The hypochondriac visits continuously the hospital complaining for various psychosomatic symptoms and byes a digital device for blood pressure measurement, in order to monitor it continuously. We learn that she just separated from her boyfriend (lucky guy) and decided to avoid any further relations for several years at least. However, her decision is not so steady and she falls after a couple of days for the first man who meets in a fast food restaurant. We wonder about her decision to break up her promise of abstinence, because the new fellow is a shorty guy, with uninteresting face and a huge head, bearing a continuous smile and trying, quite unsuccessfully though, to look sympathetic and friendly. However the love plot is nonexistent, and we get through a new series of uninteresting details of Soledad's life, e.g. we have to spend some minutes watching the doorkeeper to unzip the dress of the protagonist, because the zip was stuck (or was it an ingenious hint of the director on the loneliness of Soledad's character?). After an hour or so, it seems that the story reaches its climax, because the new boyfriend obtains to fix the toilet, a fact which initially causes distress to Soledad (may be she got used to the bidet). However, a few more events are to come and finally she moves to the house of the shining-with-joy new boyfriend, but begins to cry. This is kind of surprise, because all of a sudden, the complex, multi-layered character and personality of Soledad is revealed to all of us, the naive spectators, and the director and writer of this "masterpiece" triumph. Unfortunately, we are not clever enough to understand the deeper meaning of this movie, and we just feel deep sorrow for the 80 minutes of our life spent watching this rubbish.
