Editorial Reviews

Scandalous with an intense storyline surges a woman and her mysterious relationships with various men from the small Mexican village she lives in. Otilia (Gabriela Canudas, Winner for Best Actress at the 2001 Huelva Latin American Film Festival) is a young woman blessed by nature with a breathtaking body that transpires sensuality but at the same time cursed by a peculiar face, which is accentuated by the contrast with her gorgeous figure. This dichotomy generates among the people that surround her a combination of feelings of rejection, desire, envy and profound fear. On her part, Otilia lives constantly alienated with her repressed love desires pretending to have a strong personality to confront rejection. Nevertheless, Otilia has a huge capability to love that leads her to live a very tragic love story of epic proportions.

I really enjoyed this film, the story was both sad and scandalous. If you like betrayal, Romance and sex this film will not disappoint. It is a moderate paced but inviting story about a beautiful woman, blessed with a perfect body by both male and female standards, with a remarkable birth defect, a large dark birthmark on the left side of her face. That in itself presents unimaginable challenges to Otilia's dramatic and turbulent life. It's a gripping yet sad tale of infidelity, lawbreaking and jealousy but not completely a "Chick Flick". People get shot, a priest gets a "peek" and My favorite scene involves a major character grandstanding at a public gathering, completely in the nude, with a basket on their head. Priceless scene. The acting is good and the setting is eye catching. there is one character, a handicapped male lead who served almost no purpose...but i got passed that. The quality of this film could be better however, it takes nothing from the well written story. its like reading a good book.

I thought this movie was going to be very boring, but to my surprise it's a very enjoyable film. It starts of slow, but builds up to a very sad conclusion. I do believe that people who like semi-romatic drama will enjoy this film for the vaule that it holds. It does some nudity that might offend some people, but over all it's ok.

I am not a big fan of director Dana Rotberg's earlier work, or for that matter the whole haute arte school of Mexican filmmaking to which she belongs (of which Arturo Ripstein is the principal influence and auteur). Nevertheless, I found La Mujer del Pueblo to be a complete delight. Set somewhere vaguely between the Victorian era and the roaring 20s (el Porfiriato a la Revolucion in Mexican parlance), the period details are absolutely first-rate, from a freshly painted pulqueria to the dirt-covered streets to the furniture and wardrobes. It just feels like you were transformed to the turn of the century. The use of color and evocative settings is truly a pleasure to experience: several scenes feel like period paintings set to gentle motion. But rather than directing this into a plotless and offensive void like most of the films of her movement, Rotberg provides just enough of a plot, frequently peppered by incidences of most subtle yet profound ironies of Mexican life, all the while letting Gabriela Canudas steal every scene with her delightful screen aura. It is a shame but unfortunately not a surprise neither she nor her director have done anything of consequence since.

The DVD has optional English subtitles only and the original Spanish audio.
