Audience Reviews for Belle Epoque

  • Apr 08, 2009
    Award winner for best Foreign movie, Belle Epoque was a light romantic comedy, easy to watch, and easiy to like.It was set in the glorious time of Spain, before Franco and it was beautifully filmed and acted.The story started with a young soldier,who deserted and became friends with an old man who was an artist, a republican and had 4 beautiful daughters.As the movie progressed you get a glance of how this young soldier got involved with each one of them. Belle Epoque was one of those movies that reached its purpose ,a celebration of love and romance and funny stories of a young soldier controlled by his sexual desire. Besides the amusing and clever dialogue,great scenery, it had some beautiful Spanish actresses put into one movie, don't miss it.

    A rollicking good bedroom farce. Fernando (Jorge Sanz), an army deserter just prior to the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, finds himself the beneficiary of the hospitality of Manolo (Fernando Fernan Gomez). The arrival of Manolo's four lovely daughters sets the story in motion. A young Penelope Cruz plays Luz, the youngest daughter. Rocio (Maribel Verdú) is being wooed by a young man from the village. Violeta (Ariadna Gil) is the mannish second eldest who was raised as a boy until puberty. And Clara (Miriam Diaz Aroca) is the eldest, a widow whose husband drowned in the river the previous summer. Think of all the old farmer's daughter jokes and you begin to see the possibilities here. Which young beauty will Fernando choose? Each of the women take their turn, and the lack of sibling jealousy is remarkable. Several laugh out loud moments throughout. The arrival of the girls' mother (an opera singer) with her manager sets the final series of events in motion. And in the end, everyone seems content as Manolo is left alone again in the village. One can get a glimpse of the star quality of Miss Cruz here, before Hollywood got her in its clutches. All of the girls are quite lovely, but Penelope practically glows. Excellente!

Spain, 1931. After deserting the army, an idealistic young soldier finds shelter in an isolated country house where a free-spirited painter lives with his four beautiful daughters.

    As crazy as a Spanish film usually is, but the cast is top-notch and the plot is very respectable. One of the finest contemporary romantic tales of foreign cinema, and one of the cuttest as well. 70/100
