Pretty good TV movie about a troubled romance during the thunderous period of Elizabeth I kingdom
7 January 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Based on one of the most essential novels written by Miguel de Cervantes, this story shows the life of one young Spanish girl by the name of Isabel . La Española Inglesa deals with the kidnap of an attractive girl , Isabela, during a violent attack on the Southern city of Cádiz (1596) , carried out by the English commanded by Count of Essex and , subsequently , the cruel inprisonment of Ricaredo by the Turks . The novella and the film is a story about geographic repatriation , religion and a sensitive love story . The story begins with an act of rebelliousness proceeded by Clotaldo (José Maria Blanco) , father de Ricaredo (Carles Francino) , who takes the girl Isabel to London . By the time Isabella is a gorgeous 7-years-old little girl . Clotaldo y and his family : wife Catalina (Yolanda Arestegui) and son Ricardo (Carles Francino) are secret Catholic people who live at a Protestant England . Later on, Isabel (Macarena Garcia) would live in London with the family that kidnapped her . Isabel is considered a daugher-alike , becoming into a really wonderful and polite young . Isabel learns the English customs , but she often uses the Spanish habits ; while she starts to fall in love with their son Richard. Then , when the proud Queen Elizabeth I (Lola Herrera) to be aware about Isabel, she meets face to face the family .

This is a good costume-designing , a Spanish historic-drama and Macarena García as Isabel , and Carles Francino as Ricardo are well cast in the title roles . They are splendidly recreated turmoil , loves , and fight power of its time between the Muslim Turks and the christendom , including a bloody battle at the beginning , during The Capture of Cadiz, Spain (1596). As well as the troublesome days of the British and Spanish Empire and machinations surrounding , but it especially concerns a twisted and tumultuous love story .This costumer/melodrama recreates faithfully the historical facts , as several centuries separate us from the events are to narrate , it is really important to highlight the huge significance that these Brit/Spaniard Kingdoms had back then , as the shadows still hide from the public those great historic moments , and the significance of such deeds . The picture contributes to historical , artistic and cultural memory of an era , with a look back to the past , offering us an engaging adaptation based on this fundamental novel . It's magnificent and correctly captured by marvelous sets , splendid production design and glamorous gowns . This elaborate costumer drama packs outstanding performances from a great casting . Based on the homonymous novel by Miguel de Cervantes, the film is finely narrated by a role -Cervantes himself - who tells the tale of Isabel and Ricaredo. Miguel de Cervantes published the original "La española inglesa" as one of the twelve novels compiled as a series called "Exemplary novels". They were written between 1590 and 1612 and later printed in 1613 by Juan de la Cuesta in Madrid . Main cast is frankly fine , Macarena Garcia is good as the charming young whose life changes completely when she's somehow kidnapped by the English ; she is appropriately accompanied by Carles Francine as the brave and beloved Ricardo . Support cast is pretty good , such as Lola Herrera as an upright Queen of England Elizabeth I , Ana Wagener as Major Steward ,Yolanda Arestegui , Jose Maria Blanco , Bernabé Fernández and Michel Rellán as Cervantes himself , though his character doesn't appear in the novella .

La española inglesa was well directed Marco Castillo, with a nice screenplay by Pilar Nadal, Felipe Mellizo y Guillermo Cisneros. This interesting historical drama whose title non-official translation: "The English Spaniard/Spanish woman" contains a brilliant cinematography that adds color to the atmosphere by Gonzalo Flórez who formerly photographed notorious series. And an atmospheric and evocative musical score by Daniel Sánchez de la Hera , though composed by synthesizer . The motion picture was elegant and brilliantly directed by Marco A. Castillo . He is a professional artisan who has directed various episodes from famous TV series , such as : El Internado , Suárez y Mariscal, caso cerrado , Cafeteria Manhattan , El ministerio del tiempo , Hospital Valle Norte , SMS and Aguila Roja . Rating . 7/10 . Better than average
