This trailer for the film adaptation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's classic novel Love in the Time of Cholera is high in lush colors and meaningful looks, but low in most anything else. I also think this is one example of a voiceover nearly ruining a trailer. I don't think I need the deep, husky voice telling me this is "the greatest love story... ever told." I get it, I get it, now show me some drama and romance!
The story takes place in South America and follows the undying, lifelong love Fiorentino Ariza has for Fermina Daza. At the end of the trailer we find that the movie will feature songs by Shakira, some of which you can hear now at the movie's official MySpace page. I'm kind of digging "Pienso en Ti," a mournful, passionate tune. Love opens November 16. To check out the movie's trailer and then let me know what you think,
