The fascinating love story between Jorge and Laura from 1980 to 1999, within a context in which Argentine politics and history transits between the dictatorship, the Falklands war and the nascent democracy.
The love story between Jorge Pellegrini, a promising writer, and Laura Ramallo, a passionate waitress with artistic aspirations, over almost two decades. It begins in 1980 and ends on 1999. It tells their initial romance, the subsequent disagreements, the triumphs, the individual defeats - and their final reunion, using the events of Argentine history of these years as a backdrop.Written by
Ella es la mujer que él siempre esperó. El, es el amor de su vida. Muy lindo, pero que alguien se los diga por favor. [She is the woman he's always been waiting for. He, is the love of her life. Very cute, but somebody tell them, please.]
I don't know if somebody noticed it before, but, El mismo amor, la misma lluvia, is almost a remake of a Brazilian film, from the sixties, called "Todas as mulheres do mundo"(All the Women in the World) by Domingos Oliveira (1966). A comedy that perpetuates the talent and charm of Leila Diniz, who died prematurely in a plane crash.
The plot is similar to the Argentinian movie: Paulo is a famous flirt known for picking up beautiful women on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. This professional seducer finds true love when he meets Maria Alice, a young teacher. From then on, he confronts the dilemma of whether to give up "all the women of the world" to live with only one. The film deals with the conflict between old and new social roles women in the '60s had to choose between, and is based on the true story of the director's relationship with the leading lady. The film had a strong impact on contemporary Brazilian film, and is the most well-known role played by legendary beauty Leila Diniz
