Original Sin

Overview

Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie steam up the screen in Michael Cristofer's Original Sin, which comes to DVD with a pair of transfers.

Subtitles are accessible in all three of those languages. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence. This is a solid release from MGM/UA. It should be noted that an unrated version of the film with a handful of extra materials is available, but anyone looking for just the film will be happy with this title.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Sultry Angelina Jolie and hot-blooded Antonio Banderas steam up the screen with their passionate sex scenes in this lurid melodrama, which combines the thematic elements of film noir with those of bodice-ripping period romance novels. Based on Cornell Woolrich’s thriller Waltz into Darkness previously filmed as Mississippi Mermaid, with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Catherine Deneuve in the leads, Original Sin takes place in the late 19th century, where Cuban-born plantation owner Luis Durand Banderas awaits the arrival of his mail-order bride. Instead of the rather plain-looking woman pictured in the faded photograph she sent him, Julia Russell Jolie turns out to be an alluring beauty whose charms are as irresistible as her past is mysterious. The convoluted story, adapted by writer-director Michael Cristofer Body Shots, unfolds in a decadent tropical milieu and has a surfeit of overwrought dialogue and serpentine plot twists. But Original Sin is sensually enthralling fare of the "guilty pleasure" variety, and it deserves a spot on your shelf if only for the torrid scenes shared by Jolie and Banderas. Cristofer provides a commentary for the DVD, which also sports an elaborate music video performed by Gloria Estefan and an animated photo gallery
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert

It's an exuberant example of what it is--a bodice-ripping murder "meller"...

    This is not a love story - but it is a story about love!

    This movie tells the tale of romance, deception, murder, love and desperation as two individuals fall in love only to be scared and foiled.

    When Luis Vargas sends away to America for a wife, the last thing he expects is a apparently stunning, loyal and wonderful wife. However, soon into the marriage, he determines that his wife is not only who he thought she was but has a dangerous past. As they attempt to run from the danger, they must face death, deceit, love, depression and desperation. Will they make it, or will the forces striving to keep them apart succeed.

    This story of love, passion, deceit and death brought to you by Antonia Banderas and Angelina Jolie is powerful, sexy and emotionally exciting.

    our outermost desires shown!

    this is a movie about someone's conscionce and trying to figure out what's the best thing to do in UR life. it's about making the worst of choices for the one U luv and living w/ it. Angelina plays a woman that's a mail order wife basically and marries the hottie Antonio Banderas but the thing is she usually does this most of the time to milk the husbands for their worth and then run off w/ her accomplice but she falls for our Antonio and decides to run like she had planned. fate catches up to her and leaves u w/ a surprise ending that makes u wonder if the old saying, if it's meant to be it's meant to be, is really as true as this movie makes it be. anythings possible. especially in this movie. LOVED IT!

    Great acting, but not what you're REALLY looking for

    Basically, you don't get to see the best of Jolie. Other than that, it's a good flick

    Originally sinfull and sexy!

    I think Angelina Jolie is the most beautiful woman in the world, and was perfect for this part in the movie. She has this sexiness, yet mysterious look, perfect for the Julia Russell role in this movie. Banderas was also very good for this role, playing the innocent and helpless man Luis Vargas. I also suggest the soundtrack to this movie; the book is just as amazing. Whether you get the un-rated version or not, the movie is just the same. There is just more nudity. I love the movie, the soundtrack, the book, and of course Angelina Jolie!

    not quite sinful enough

    With award wining stars ''Angelina Jolie'', and ''Antonio Banderis'', the film managed to create a stir among viewers. The stir however, involves mixed feelings. While some audiences found it to be romantic and spellbounding,the film wasn't able to reach the depth of its intentions or rise to the expectation of the book it is based upon, ''waltz into darkness''. After seeing the movie twice, I cannot help but feel that there were some important factors missing. I will be looking forward to reading the book. The filmmaker may have had an underlining tone that just wasn't conveyed strongly enough unlike his movie ''Gia,'' which was great. Maybe next time, he'll waltz his vision out of the darkness.
