La mujer de mi hermano

Critics Consensus

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

Movie Info

A woman bored with marriage discovers the pleasure and pain of infidelity in this stylish drama from Mexico. Zoe (Bárbara Mori) is a beautiful woman who has been married to Ignacio (Christian Meier) for nearly a decade. While Zoe still loves her husband, she feels the spark has gone out of their relationship, and she's become restless and anxious. Hoping to find the excitement she craves in forbidden fruit, Zoe falls into an affair with Gonzalo (Manolo Cardona), Ignacio's rough-edged but handsome brother. Zoe and Gonzalo's passionate affair is deeply satisfying to them both, but the adulterous couple must deal with the sharp sting of betrayal when Ignacio finds out they've been sleeping together. La Mujer de mi Hermano (aka My Brother's Wife) was the first feature length film from director Ricardo de Montreuil.

  • 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).

    May 5, 2006 | Rating: 3/5
  • 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.

    May 5, 2006 | Rating: 2/4
  • Brisk, shallow, highly condensed version of a telenovela.

Audience Reviews for La mujer de mi hermano

An interesting movie.

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. 3/5
