Editorial Reviews

En tiempos de la Revolución Mexicana, las tropas del General José Juan Reyes toman un tranquilo poblado con el afán de despojar a los ricos de sus fortunas y hacerse de recursos para mantener su ejército. Mientras confisca algunos bienes, Reyes conoce a Beatriz Peñafiel, quien lo hace añorar la única cosa que no ha sentido en su vida, el amor. La belleza y la altivez de Beatriz termina por dominar al macho y gentil general...o acaso habrá sido al revés?

In the time of the Mexican Revolution, General Jose Juan Reyes and his troops take over a small town and set up base. Reyes meets Beatriz, and begins to experience the one thing that has always been void in his life, love. The beauty of Beatriz will tame the strict and tyrant general.

This is a great classic of Mexico's Golden Age of Cinema in the 1940s by its greatest director, Emilio Fernandez. Yes, these films are a little syrupy, but so was abuelita's atole; its the Mexican way. The opening scenes with the cannon going off and the horses galloping in the Revolution are wonderful. This film stars Maria Felix, the Katherine Hepburn or Elizabeth Taylor of Mexican cinema, as well as Fernandez's regular Pedro Armendariz (see him also in the Bond classic From Russia with Love).
Regarding the Cozumel Films DVD: the image is far from the Jeanne d'Arc treatment, but be happy to see this film at all. Also, there are no subtitles so its for Spanish speakers only. No extras to speak of, but we can forgive that if Cozumel films hurries along DVD releases of "La Perla", "Maria Candelaria", and most importantly, the 1949 classic "Salon Mexico".

The fabulous team of director Emilio Fernández and cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa made with "Enamorada" another great example of Mexican film in its days of glory. They were both central figures in La Epoca de Oro of Mexican filmmaking, as was Fernández' favorite actor, Pedro Armendáriz, who made 14 films for the legendary director in his nearly 3 decade long career, which included 3 films for John Ford, and the 1963 James Bond "From Russia With Love", which was to be his last; here he plays a revolutionary general, and he is handsome, funny, and very moving in the part.
Maria Félix was one of the most exquisite creatures to walk the earth, and was Mexico's biggest star; she is perfect as the beautiful Beatriz, a woman who is strong enough to melt the general's heart while giving him a slap and a punch. Félix also had a long lasting career, which spanned from the early '40s through 1970.

The plot for "Enamorada" has similarities to "The Taming of the Shrew", and is a romance set in the turbulent times of 1821, that has much drama as well as some hilarious scenes (my favorite is when Beatriz finds out her mother was "stolen"). Lovely music enhances the film, with Shubert's "Ave Maria" and Pedro Galindo's "La Malagueña".
Others in the cast that are excellent include Fernando Fernández as Padre Sierra, José Morcillo as Beatriz' father, and Eugenio Rossi as her fiancée.

"Enamorada" was a huge success, and won many Ariel Awards (Mexico's Oscar), including Best Picture, Actress, Director, Screenplay, and Cinematography, with Armendáriz winning a special Outstanding Career Ariel.

Excellent film from our Mexican golden age of cinema. The performance is amazing with Maria Felix and Pedro Armedariz. The story, the landscape, and the photography and the music are beautiful. Don't miss this DVD.
NOTICE: A very curious fact. The las scence before the word FIN (END) is so close to that performed by Marlene Dietrich in Marrakech. A necklace broken and a woman who follows her man and left a wedding compromise...
There are also an English version of ENAMORADA, nearly with the same actors except María Felix. Such version was made as a request of the main American actress but the result is not the same.

I bought this as a gift for someone. The picture quality seems good but it starts to freeze after about 18-20 minutes into the movie. Tried it on 4 players and they all did the same thing. Will be returning it. I wouldn't even give it one star except your forced to so you can complete the review. If they are willing to exchange it while they take care of all shipping charges I will update review.
I am updating this as of 1-28-12. I contacted the seller and they took care of it immediately. No arguments whatsoever. They told me to pitch the defective disc and they sent out a replacement. The receiver of the gift is very pleased and so am I. Good job to the seller.

Here is my update. I contacted the seller and they sent me a return as fast as they could. Told me to trash the bad disc. Bravo for taking care of the problem as well and as fast as they did. They get a excellant recomendation from me.

Romantic melodrama at its best, if you ask me! I still remember the reaction of the international audience who saw this motion picture as part of the homage to Fernández in La Habana Film Festival, half a century after its original release: as the word "Fin" appeared on the screen, people stood up and applauded in a mix of emotion, humor and excitement. Because watching a celebrity as "La Doña" hit the dusty road as a common soldadera, following the officer she loves during Mexican revolution in 1910, is something to cherish, laugh at and applaud. In Cholula, a general falls for the beautiful, haughty daughter of a landowner, engaged to an American, so it is "The Taming of the Shrew" time once again. And believe me, it is a pleasure to watch the duel between Félix and Armendáriz as the Trío Calaveras sings "Malagueña salerosa". Ariel Awards for Best Direction, Actress, Cinematography (Gabriel Figueroa), Film Editing, sound and new actor (Eduardo Arozamena). A special Golden Ariel was given to director Fernández.
