not your run-of-the-mill love triangle
12 January 2007 | by andrabemSee all my reviews

This film is a production that employed actors from various Latin-American countries in order to attract viewers in all Latin America. It's something that should be tried more often. We should organize distribution & production companies in Latin-America to integrate the whole region and give us more opportunities to see Latin American films, because there's such an overload of American films that we in Brazil know much more about Hollywood stars than about our Latin-American neighbours. This said, let's go to the film.

The film is about a triangle love story but it is in some ways unusual -there's no moral preaching and no conventional happy ending. The characters belong to the privileged class and live in a conservative background where the Catholic Church is still a power to reckon with, but the modern world is their real world. They may sometimes go to mass and confession but when conflicts between the two worlds arise their own wishes prevail, in spite of conservative dogmas, and the Church and their icons go to the background.

There was a reviewer that said that the sex scenes were a fill-up and were not necessary at all. I disagree with him. Sex is essential to show the reason why Zoe (gorgeous Barbara Mori) in spite of her conservative upbringing, engages in an affair with her brother-in-law. And the sex scenes are really sensual, showing a woman discovering herself through sexual pleasure. Can someone tell me of any American actress able to do the same in such a sensual way? The acting of the whole cast is excellent, the film has such a good story that manages to keep our interest till the end. I'm not telling you that "La Mujer de mi Hermano" is a masterpiece but certainly it's a very good film.

Other Latin American films I recommend are: "Pantaleon Y las Visitadoras", "Maria Full of Grace", "Nina Santa", "El mismo amor, La misma lluvia", "Y Tu Mama Tambien", "Machuca" and so many others!
