No better than an R-rated "telenovela," with the requisite love triangle involving uncommonly attractive players and banal plotlines.

Here's a 'steamy' soap opera that's never very steamy, and if you set your expectations low, this movie is only too happy to meet them.

It's a gorgeously mounted soap, with enough third-act surprises to justify its reputation (it was a huge hit in Latin America).

Soapy, sappy, silly and sluggish, La Mujer de Mi Hermano (My Brother's Wife) is one of those issue movies that wants to cram every hot topic it can think of into a melodramatic situation.

Debut director Ricardo de Montreuil only cares about filming pretty people in the most hackneyed positions imaginable.

A stylish soap opera that casts cultural dramas as melodrama.

Brisk, shallow, highly condensed version of a telenovela.

With one-dimensional characters stuck in a plot that gives them nothing noteworthy to do, only the most superficial aspects remain to be admired: the attractive cast, their attractive clothes and the attractive houses in which they live.

Stars actors from all over South America and was shot in Chile by a Peruvian director, yet what it most closely resembles is a Mexican soap opera.

if a movie ever needed a gratuitous shot of a breast or a bare a** it's La Mujer de Mi Hermano

90 minutes of wheezing emotional flare-ups, played with such straight-faced sobriety that I wanted to slap these people and tell them all to lighten up

La Mujer de Mi Hermano neither looks nor feels like the Mexican telenovela that it fundamentally is. That makes the movie interesting. More interesting than the sudsy story it tells, anyway.

Plays like a season worth of telenovela episodes.

Audience Reviews for La Mujer de Mi Hermano

Mexican films are making waves. With the success of Mexican directors like Alfonso Cuaron and Guillermo Del Toro, Mexico is slowly making its way to Hollywood and global audiences alike.

'La Mujer de Mi Hermano' is a story about a man, his wife and his brother. Wife gets bored of man, wife seeks refuge to man's brother, wife and brother form an incestuous love affair, wife gets pregnant, man is devastated.

Though that is not all. There is a shocking twist near the end. It is about man and his closet.

All in all, an effective film with good acting and with it a good backstory. The leading lady is hot.
