Movie Reviews

A tender little film
Grady Harp | Los Angeles, CA United States | 12/30/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"CILANTRO AND PARSLEY comes on quietly as one of the characters in the story is making a video about Couples. She happens to interview her sister and then her brother-in-law and we see a mariage fall apart on film. But just as "reality" is what videos of world events are supposed to be feeding us, quite the opposite occurs here. Through a series of attempts to adjust to the non-married world, seeking to overcome the loneliness that pairing can prevent, all the characters we see eventually find that being "coupled" is the only safe haven in a world that no longer makes sense. Sensitively directed and acted, this movie restores faith in partnerships that sadly seems out of vogue today. A feel good film."
Romantic Comedy

""Cilantro & Perejil" is a sweet film from Mexico that is a romantic comedy. Cilantro and parsley refer to herbs that are used in cooking. The film won Ariel Awards in Mexico for the Best Direction of Rafael Montero and for Best Editing. Carlos Limon is a businessman who is so obsessed with deals that he spends almost no time with his wife Susana. Demian Bichir plays Carlos. Bichir appeared north of the border in "Heartbreak Hospital" in 2002 and will star in Steven Soderbergh's film "The Argentine," playing Fidel Castro to Benicio del Toro's Che Guavara. His bold Latin good looks make him great as the often-confused husband. Susana is played by Arcelia Ramirez. Ramirez has appeared in many Mexican films and television shows. Susana tosses Carlos out because he's not paying attention to her. Pride apparently drags out the separation for four months until they are reunited with a computer match of a dating service as they sit down to a restaurant dinner. Susana's grandmother Adela is played by Mercedes Pascual. She also finds romance with Alejandro Bichir's Genaro. This is a sweet melodrama that keeps your attention and ties things up at the end with a happy ending. Enjoy!"
