Movie Preview: Love in the Time of Cholera


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,

this book was super boring. the only part i remember liking was when the couple got hitched and instead of having sex on their wedding night, they just got naked in bed and rubbed each other's bodies to get to know the other person's body. at least, that's how i remember it. am i right? it was romantic, i thought.

How the heck did they take such a wonderful book and turn it into (from the trailer at least) a cheesy Hallmark movie?

Man, John Leguizamo's accent in that trailer drove me batty. When is Hollywood going to recognize that a Spanish accent is very different than an Argentinian accent, than a Colombian accent, than a Cuban accent, than a Mexican accent, etc? Folks would go ballistic if someone garbled a Scottish accent and tried to pass it off while playing an Irish character, no?

"Pienso en ti" is actually a really old song, it was on Shakira's Pies Descalzos album which came out in 1996. Her older songs are really beautiful, some of the new ones aren't as good. As for the book, I have been meaning to read it since I was in like 9th grade, I love Gabriel Garcia Marquez he's a great writer.

OMG who ever is the casting director for this film should get an academy if there is one for such position because i love how the younger characters resembles their older versions to the point like they hold off on filming the film for 30 years to see the actress and actors age naturally. it's amazing. Or maybe it's the same actors playing the same parts but with really good make-up. well than i'm still amazed.

This is one of my favorite books of all time, but the voiceover on this trailer is horrible! I hope its just doing a great disservice to the movie rather than the movie itself being a let down.
