A beautiful way to know Miroslava
20 November 2005 | by alejandrogmxSee all my reviews

One of the biggest divas on Mexican 50s cinema was Miroslava Stern. This movie reveals the last hours of her life, before she commits suicide. Through flashbacks from her childhood in Czekoslovakia until her last days in Mexico, we appreciate her lonely adolescence as a misunderstood girl that came from a strange country during world war II, her young adulthood with a failed marriage and a raising career against her father's will, and the tragic romance with a Torero in Spain that leads her to death. All her pain, all her broken life is portrayed in this splendid movie, wonderfully photographed by Emmanuel Lubezki and narrated by the so-missed actor Claudio Brook, this is the sad and dramatic story about a wonderful talented woman and her everyday battle with loneliness and sorrow. Maybe not a perfect movie, but it's indeed one of the best Mexican films of the 90s. A must-see if you're a fan of Miroslava or if you are starting in the new view of Mexican films.
