A medium movie compared to best of Ripstein filmography
14 January 2012 | by chris-810-745673See all my reviews

Considering Ripstein one of the favorite modern Mexican filmmakers, hopes for "La seducción" must be great. It has some major topics of his career, like domination throw sexual roles, a certain critic to moral, religion and institutions with a taste of tragedy for example. It is an interesting thriller during a rural religious war, the perfect ambient to develop these topics, but, being honest, not totally achieve compared to his big hits of two previous years, "Cadena perpetua", "La tía Alejandra" or "El lugar sin límites".

Experimented actors Katy Jurado, with an outstanding performance, and Gonzalo Vega, try to shelter Viridiana Alatriste first film protagonist, sadly Viridiana never shines. She doesn't expelled the sensuality required for this character. The whole movie must gravitate around her but she fails in intensity and sex appeal. The movie is still watchable but it could be much better.
