VAGABUNDA (1994) is a surprising Mexican film; I'm gonna buy it
27 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

A story about a "shipwreck" woman, the island to which she arrives and the lives she .... well, let's just say she's more than a femme fatale, that she leaves behind a sense of vulnerability, fate, being forlorn.

Very believable characters, played by the excellent actors, with depth and added dimensions. Hints of Blue Angel and Of Human Bondage, but with a Latino twist of machismo, passion etc.

The protagonist is very alluring. The job by Del Castillo is impeccable. The director is talented and though slightly "young": i.e. the camera-work shows his nervousness because it avoids close-ups and does not stay with the actor after s/he has made a major statement.

Ominous Latino ballads of love play a minor role and you will still enjoy the movie even if you don't understand them or relate to them.

The "dark woman" is a staple of Latin novels (this film is based on one such), maybe so as to compensate for the plentiful women-victims in real life. Maria E. Mayer Alhambra, CA
