Great movie
17 February 2008 | by ajnegronSee all my reviews

First I will like to address the gentlemen that wrote a comment about the film being shown in Puerto Rico without English subtitles. I just came back from the theater and the film DOES have the subtitles in English. So, instead of involving politics on this site inform yourself.

Now, about the film. The film is divided in three different situations, each involving the sweet and sour feeling that is called love. The cast did a great job in their acting, the characters were believable and the situations reflect different aspects of everyday life.

Maldeamores may well be the start of a new line of high quality Puertorican films that will bring a renaissance to that industry in the island.
