La mujer de mi hermano Reviews

May 5, 2006
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.

Repressed desire! A sultry soap-opera star! Incest! Gay politics! La Mujer de Mi Hermano has it all. Now if it only had a decent plot.
