Love in the Time of Cholera

Rated R 138 minutes 2007

In their adaptation of Gabriel García Márquez' novel of a man who waits 53 years to consummate the love of his life, director Mike Newell and screenwriter Ronald Harwood take a deliriously romantic, archly anti-realistic story and make it pretty prosaic. The actors, especially Javier Bardem as lovesick Florentino Ariza, Giovanna Mezzogiorno as his beloved, and Marcela Mar as a Florentino paramour, do what they can, but in contrast to other films in the well-stocked Garcia Márquez filmography, it's splendidly picturesque but emotionally shallow. Liev Schreiber, Fernanda Montenegro, and Catalina Sandino Moreno are among the supporting cast (138 min., 2007).
