Love in the Time of Cholera - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Based on Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez' novel and adapted by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ronald Harwood ("The Pianist"), "Love in the Time of Cholera" is one of the world's most romantic stories. The drama traces the Job-like vigil of Florentino Ariza, who waits for more than half a century to claim the hand of Fermina Daza, the woman he loves. Directed by Mike Newell ("Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," "Four Weddings and a Funeral"), and featuring a talented cast that includes Javier Bardem, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Benjamin Bratt, John Leguizamo, Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Hector Elizondo and Liev Schreiber, "Love in the Time of Cholera" is scheduled for a November 16th, 2007 release.

MOVIE REVIEW

While some of the year's strongest films of 2007 have stemmed from difficult novel-to-film translations (There Will Be Blood, Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Atonement), the big screen adaptation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's famous novel Love in the Time of Cholera proves to be a disappointment. Boasting a nice production value and a touching performance from Javier Bardem, Mike Newell's (Four Wedding and a Funeral, Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire) translation is far too thorough and literal-minded to be taken in a single sitting.
