Movie Reviews

Refreshingly familiar but also new
Wendell | Edmonston | 03/31/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I enjoyed this. It's a reminder of how classic the premise of Romeo and Juliet really is, but it's always nice to see the story cast in new and innovative ways. This film does that. Martha Higareda is lovely as Renata, and in general Fernando Sariñana does a great job of getting the most out of his young actors. For American viewers this will also have the refreshing complexity of recent Mexican film in that it shows the class frictions and prejudices.

I did think the ending played out a little to conveniently tragic. It's not exactly as the original, of course. That ending might have been too elaborate to get into this story realistically. Instead the director goes for a gritty, believable sort of realism."
