A woman between two loves : as a mother and her passion for a man . . .
"Vacations". Also called "Stronger than Love" is a play by M.L.Regas and J.Albornoz who adapted for the screen and signed the script. An intimate comedy-drama carefully filmed. Luis Mottura, who was a prestigious theatre director, shot about seven films between 1943 and 1956. Mecha Ortiz worked in the theatre under his command during nearly two decades. In this occasion Mottura surpasses as a film technician.A clever view of an upper middle-class woman and her family. Shades and brightness share the different sequences according to each situation. Passion is lighted by fresh moments in which the young people are involved. Approaching the end the film gets to its best. Mecha Ortiz as Estela shows the different emotions in her character through the film which she knows how to make them real. Beauty, smartness and the touch of her distinct deep voice accompanying her. As her partner, Francisco Martinez Allende plays her lover John.Amalia Sanchez Ariño, Manuel Collado, Maruja Gil Quesada, Leticia Scury, Jesus Pampin and the young people: Susana Canales, Ricardo Duggan, Juan Carlos Altavista, Luis Zabala, Norma Gimenez and Lilian Valmar.Outstanding photography by Mario Pages.Setting by Gori Muñoz and Francisco Cardenas. The score by Alejandro Gutierrez del Barrio.
