Maldeamores – Riding the Roller Coaster of Love

Last month, a rep from Maya Entertaiment contacted me about their movies and sent me a copy of Maldeamores.

I watched the film last weekend and found it to be a really great film, one that I will definitely be sharing with my mom, who I know will enjoy it as well. I can’t believe I missed this one:

Maldeamores is set takes place in Puerto Rico and revolves around several interweaving stories of mad love, the illogical, and masochistic kind. You know the kind that burns eternal or remains stamped in your heart forever.

However, the film is witty, extremely funny (especially in how it encapsulates every aspect of Puerto Rican culture perfectly – you will be reminded of mami, agüela, tio, etc., I promise), and touching. Think Speed meets Crash (with a dash of Love in the Time of Cholera) but with a focus on tragic and/or timeless love.The film’s executive director is Benicio Del Toro and Luis Guzmán has a starring role

If you haven’t seen it, I definitely recommend it. You won’t regret it!
