Love in the time of cholera

Love in the time of cholera (2007)
The two loving souls, Fermina Daza (Giovanna Mezzogiorno) and Florentino Ariza (Javier Bardem- the Oscar winner for ‘No Country for Old Man’), are departed by Fermina’s father because Florentino- the telegram boy, also a cholera victim, is not rich enough for his daughter. With the time the girl starts believing that relation merely as an illusion where the boy waits for his princess for the life. His mother wants him to make love with other women so that he would forget Fermina, his princess. Fermina marries with a doctor, who fells in love with her at the very first sight. Florentino does not marry but he sleeps with more than 600 females of all age until he reunites with Fermina at the age of 72, after her husband dies.

Javier Bardem has acted up to the satisfaction. Giovanna Mezzogiorno has done justice to the movie. Love in the time of cholera (2007) is a worth to see movie. Also you’ll not miss anything if you don’t watch it. The movie is average. I rate it 3/5.
