Storyline

This is the story of three brave women; Patria, Minerva, and Maria Teresa, they were known as the Mirabal Sisters, born into a privileged family in the fields of Salcedo. At that time, the Dominican Republic was under the sway of the dictator, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo Molina, who has ruled the country with an iron fist since 1930. This is the story of how Minerva and her sisters dared to defy the mad dictator and his ruthless government, alongside some allies and family members as well. But this act of bravery and courage leads to tragic consequences, but an inspiration for the people. Written by Emphinix

Better than Zanky Panky but still a loooot of room for improvement...
22 February 2011 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This is the second Dominican film I've seen. The other one was Sanky Panky. I think in three years or so Dominican cinema has somewhat improved: I liked the photography and the music. Nothing to say about them, they were quite good.

Unfortunately, there was a huge amount of things I did not like: - Acting was very very bad. Trujillo looked more like a clown than a dictator. Soap Opera style acting indeed.

  • Screenplay: Full of holes, unarticulated, slow as hell, too much into


details of the initial situation, not enough of the really critical ones. The best friend of a good screenplay writer is the delete key. Delancer's computer may not have one.

  • Details, details, details: Parties that does not feel like ones,


body-building Minerva, lots of clichés that the Dominican directors tends to include in films just as promotion of the country: baile de palos, serenatas...

My general feeling was that the film did not present the real things but kind of a caricature of them.
