A poetic film
18 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Among his many passions, García Márquez felt a special kindness to the movie's world. Back in the fifties, he wrote plenty columns about movies, and his understanding of this art was remarkable. He approach was, off course, trough literature. He admired Audrey Hepburn, the skills of Hitchcock, he love the great movies of Bogart, Gary Cooper, Gregory Peck. Of all his books, he said once, this "El Amor y otros demonios" was composed attending to the resources of movie makers.

There has been a lot of adaptations. I love this ones. It's so simple, it gets to the point, it talks about love, repression, sin, kindness. It has to be so tough to put García Márquez imagination trough pictures, but in this beautiful images, in this outstanding photography, you can get a glimpse of that wonderful and charming world.

A dog bite a little girl. The infection was regard as evil plan. A young preacher is in charge to this difficult case.
