Love in the Time of Cholera – The Movie

12 11 2007

I just (right now) saw the commercial on TV!!! “Love in the Time of Cholera” (The Movie) is being released this Friday, November 16th, 2007. The movie is based on the novel by the same name. Actually, the Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel is originally in Spanish, “El Amor en los Tiempos del Cholera”.

Why is it that everything “underground” that I liked eight years ago is mainstream today? Julieta Venegas, Shakira, Nelly Furtado, Juanes, Salsa…

The latest example, one of my favorite books by my favorite author, G.G.M.

So I am not going to talk about the novel/movie because if you don’t know, well… then ax somebody. Besides, you should know.

Suffice it to say that at the top of the New York Times Best-Seller list is, as you guessed it, Love in the Times of Cholera”.

Finally, the movie trailer

And if that wasn’t enough, Shakira’s new song “Despedida” is in the movie’s soundtrack!!

See? The marriage of Latin Rock and the Latin American Cinema, only that now, eight years later, it’s in English.
