Storyline

A month before he's to marry Carmen, Antonio finds a photograph of a man with his arm on her shoulder. The photograph triggers jealousy: he questions Carmen, Carman's friend Cinta, and his friend Luis who introduced him to Carmen. Cinta tells Antonio the man's first name. Carmen tells him that the man meant nothing to her, and that the photograph was taken before she met Antonio. She loves Antonio and sets out to wipe the photograph from his mind through exuberant sex, but her ploy backfires and Antonio remains fixated. Slowly he finds out about the man, and about Carmen's past. Will jealousy consume this couple or can they find a way to kill the green-eyed monster? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

How jealousy affects a relationship
2 March 2000 | by filfy-2See all my reviews

Vicente Aranda's "Celos" illustrates how jealousy in a relationship can tear a couple apart as well as bring them together.

This drama-thriller is mainly psychological and it features a good performance from Aitana Sánchez-Gijón (best known in the US for "A Walk in the Clouds"). Although the film does dwell a little too long on the jealousy issue, it is nonetheless absorbing and it presents a good look at contemporary working-class Spanish life.

Kudos to the cinematographer for making the best use of the Spanish light!
