Movie Info

Three separate portraits of love reflect upon the unavoidable pain, comedy, obsession and awkwardness of that universal feeling. An accidental revelation leads a woman (Teresa Hernández) to fight with her cousin over her cheating husband (Luis Guzmán) ; a young man takes a bus hostage and threatens to kill unless the driver (Dolores Pedro) marries him; and a woman's (Silvia Brito) two ex-husbands (Miguel Ángel Álvarez, Chavito Marrero) fight over her in their twilight years.

Audience Reviews for Lovesickness

  • Jan 19, 2009
    Great, great movie to be honest. I really like how it portrays love from all different perspectives and it helps make the movie really unique. It's really well written and well acted, well for the most part cause some of the actors felt like they were reading from a cue card as it just didn't feel natural at all. But those moments are few and they never really take away from the movie. Me, being from Puerto Rico, found several parts of this movie to be hilarious since they do portray pretty accurately how puertorican people are/how people here would react to some events of life (to a certain degree). One of the problems I have is that the dialogue doesn't contain as much puertorican slang as they should have, I'm guessing that was done to appeal to a wider audience to keep it from just being a film that only Puerto Rico will see and it DID work since it's been seen by more countries around the world than any other film to come from Puerto Rico (at least that I'm aware of). And it's also good to see a great puertorican movie cause to be honest over here, movies are usually very cheaply made (and filmed lazily too) and are only shot for a local audience. So it's great to see a movie that tries to take its story to a wider audience and succeeding at reaching that goal. So overall this is an easy recommendation since it is a great movie with some unique views on love and life.

    The most realistic depiction of Puerto Rico and its inhabitants. Everything about it is real down to the way we speak and how we treat each other. Absolutely beautiful film and by far the best Puerto Rican film ever done. Powerful performances, great story, and amazing cinematography.

    Maldeamores (Lovesickness) was Puerto Rico's official submission to the Best Foreign Language Film Category of the 2008 Academy Awards... I got the chance to see this at the San Diego Latino Film Festival, and I was expecting a GREAT movie (which it isn't) but it's decent and entertaining, especially for the acting... Every member of the cast does a wonderful job, and i'd never seen or heard about any of them (except for Luis Guzman). The film is funny, but sometimes, it tries too hard... The beggining and end sequences are totally stupid and unnecessary.

    Well I din't liked it but still is nice to see that there is still hope for us here we have gone long way and we still can go even farther!! so please see it join the cause!!! support this type of theater!!! A three-part look at the ironies of love, with stories that involve a young boy, a hostage situation, and a divorced elderly couple caught in a love triangle.
