Description Technical Specs
The short stories of Nobel Prize-winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez inspired Don't Fool With Love, a trilogy of torrid tales steeped in the style of Marquez's magic realism. In The Two Way Mirror (Carlos Garcia Agraz, 1990, 27 mins.), a young woman about to wed the son of a prominent family discovers that she can see through time in her bedroom mirror, which begins a steamy romance with a 19th-century soldier. In Saturday Night Thief (Jose Luis Garcia Agraz, 1992, 25 mins.), a lonely woman whose husband is away finds herself strangely attracted to the bandit who breaks into her mansion. And in Far Apart (1991, 27 mins.), famed Cuban director Tomas Gutierrez Alea (Strawberry and Chocolate, Memories of Underdevelopment) spins a tragic yarn about two lovers' marriage plans that go awry one fateful night in 1956, and a letter received by the would-be bride 35 years later, leading her back. In Spanish with English subtitles.
