Passionada is one of those rare romantic dramedys that involves characters over the age of 35. While there are a couple of young attractive twenty-somethings thrown in to story, the vast majority of characters in the film are well into their 30s and beyond. The movie should get credit for just taking this kind of commerical risk. Perhaps the lack of commercial success this film enjoyed confirms why movie-makers shy away from romance stories involving older characters. Anyway, this movie is, in general, cute and light with a thin story line and predictable outcomes. That I can recommend the film speaks more to the characters involved rather than the plot itself. They are very likeable characters set in place that is very likeable (a Massachusetts fishing town). They are all so pleasent and charming that you can forgive the romance cliches and predictable plot development. If you are looking for mindless romantic entertainment involving actors not straight out of high-school, here you go.
