Love in the Time of Cholera


I finally watched this 2007 film after a friend gave me the DVD and insisted.

It's two hours and 18 minutes long and felt like it.

Which is not necessarily a bad thing.

In the spirit of full disclosure let me note that I watched about half one night and the rest the next.

Like a delicious hot soup that starts at room temperature and then slowly starts to warm and enrobe those in its vicinity in a sense of comfort and well-being, so it went the second night.

It's a love story in the truest sense of the word, spanning half a century and centered in the country of Colombia (for once I got the spelling right the first time).

Everyone in it — especially Benjamin Bratt and Javier Bardem — is magnificent.


Highly recommended if you're the sort who doesn't insist on action and violence and enjoys the subtle play of emotion and time on those — like us — caught in their web.
