Moving portrayal of different days in Colombia
22 May 2000 | by jcardosoSee all my reviews

Unfortunately overlooked when first released in Colombia, `Confesión a Laura' (Confessing to Laura) is one of the most universally appealing, and at the same time, unmistakably Colombian films ever produced. The story occurs on April 9, 1948, a pivotal day on Colombian modern history, presidential candidate Jorge Eliécer Gaitán has been assassinated, riots and mayhem are all over Bogotá. An oppressed husband (Gustavo Londoño, in the best performance of his beautiful career) has to spend the day at Laura's home (Vicky Hernández), a lonely, mature schoolteacher.

With a direct homage to Ettore Scola's `An Special Day', it reflects on great universal themes such as love, lost opportunities, tango and Humphrey Bogart.
