Review It's been said that one of the easiest ways to get over someone is to get under someone else...That old adage is put into play by Florentino Ariza (Javier Bardem) in director Mike Newell's Love in the Time of Cholera. Based on the magical-realist novel by Colombian scribe Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Bardem plays a man who spends most of his life obsessed by his former flame, a rich beauty named Fermina Daza (Giovanna Mezzogiorno). When circumstances tear the young lovers apart, Bardem spends the next 50+ years pining for Fermina...and bedding hundreds of women in an attempt to get his lost love out of his mind and heart. And like Florentino, Newell isn't totally successful in his quest to make great movie from one of the 20th century's classic novels. Running almost two and a half hours, Love in the Time of Cholera is a meandering meditation on love that often veers into absurdity, despite a few touching moments...As for how faithful the movie is to the novel, only those who have read the book can know that for sure. But the book is usually better than the movie, and that is probably true in this case. Love in the Time of Cholera isn't a total misfire, but for those who like our romantic dramas a little more realistic (and with less old-age makeup), it's a disappointment.
