recent cinema: Ask the Wind

Filed under: film — burnett @ 8:09 am

The reviews are correct on this one… it just doesn’t work.� Having said that, the book itself has genuine attraction.� It is about two people who, although� drawn to each other, are trying to reject so much in their own lives, that they treat each other unkindly.� It is a classic psychological scenario.� Much of the movie shows Arturo being downright mean to a woman that he loves, and incapable of saying the things that he really feels.� (One of many things that makes the movie not work is that he is unkind toward Salma Hayek’s character, and there is nothing about Salma Hayek that makes the viewer quite buy Arturo’s need to treat her coldly.)�
