Guest Comments

From:  "christina"

"Here i am again the student from MCC in Arizona. this was a great film! So romantic, so not unlike some of the things that i have seen in the catholic church. Sad to say, Although i know that not everyone is like that. Besides that it was just a great story."


From:  "erin"

"Wonderful Film. Beautifully made and directed. Left me in tears. It is a true romantic film that displays the strife in Argentina."


From:  "casper"

"A vivid and provocative introduction to nineteenth-century Argentine history and culture. Although the movie centers around unrequitted love, one cannot escape how "Camila" continuously bombards the audience with symbolic images of Rosa's dictitorial legacy."


From:  "Aquarius"

"I found Camila to be a melodrama, with a meidocre accuracy for period piece technical styles, clothes, and conversationality. The directing wasn't anything to remark good things about-just standard "Hollywood-acceptable" editing style. It had a very obvious religious focus, as there were as many long takes of crosses, crucifixes, and other religious icons. The slow, over-dramatic scene cuts just prolonged the feminist perspective to the historical adaptation. Although the story was true, the cinematic package was blasaie. The ever-present, overpowering, yet NEVER seen mighty and ruthless dictator, Rosas, wasn't all that controlling of his subjects, with Camila's father, an important upper-crust socialite, in more direct control of what the army and government said. In the perspective of a film student - Kudos to Ms. Bemberg. In the perspective of a GUY...a weak melodrama, with the only found saving grace to be the on-screen beauty Susu, who plays Camila. For the females...you'll like it, it's a chick-flick."
