Even the Rain (Tambien la lluvia) Movie Reviews
User reviews on Even the Rain (Tambien la lluvia)
So this was a movie had 3 more movies within itself: the set up reenactment of Columbus's expedition, the filming of that expedition, and the local uprising in current times. It was confusing and none of the stories were that good either. The film had good moments and powerful scenes but the message confused me and I was not sure what was the purpose of this film. Gael García Bernal and Luis Tosar give great performances and I think they gave a lift to the film. I might be biased, because I adore Gael Gracia Bernal and I love every movie he is in. Overall, i think the movie was a little bit too confusing for my taste and had too many political hints, but if you like that in a movie, you will like “Even The Rain”.
I think the movie was alright, I do not think it was great. It really was a movie about making a movie with politics and history mixed in. I found it a little bit too complicated and pretenscious. It is a very ambitious movie with numerous narratives and really solid performances. The movie is absolutely beautiful visually and I really enjoyed watching the scene of Columbus’s arrival. I was also confused about Costa and Sebastian and Costa’s sudden transformation into a caring guy. I did not believe it and it did not seem genuine. I absolutely love Luis Tosar and Gael García Bernal, they are great actors and they usually give very good performances and they did alright in this film as well. Overall, I think the movie was a little bit too complicated but interesting.
