Overview

The Spanish/Argentinian Of Love and Shadows De Amor y Sombras is a fragmentary adaptation of the Isabel Allende novel of the same name. The scene is Chile, during the dictatorial Pinochet regime of the early 1970s. Journalist Jennifer Connelly, insulated from the truth and enjoying the romantic favors of Army officer Camillo Gallardin, prefers to turn a blind eye to the political turmoil all around her. She changes her attitude abruptly when she falls in love with charismatic self-styled anarchist Antonio Banderas. The grim realities depicted in the Allende novel are soft-pedalled in favor of the Connelly-Banderas love story-which, truth to tell, doesn't play very well on screen.

    Terrible Adaption

    Jennifer Connelly and Antonio Banderas in a sex scene. Nice thinking, producers but keep to the story line. Connelly is Irish, Banderas I don't think comes from that side of the water. What I found repugnant is that they found they loved each other after they saw a mass grave! Wow, what a turn-on. Allende's novel is much more subtle than this terrible adaption of a good book. Rip this DVD to shreds. I didn't like Pinochet too much, nor this movie. I'll stay with the burgoesie.
