  • As one unfamiliar with the novel, I found it hard to tease out its meaning from this handsomely mounted, well-acted, aggressively elliptical adaptation. show more

  • Shot on location in vibrant Cartagena, the film's strong suit is aesthetic. Cinematographer Alfonso Beato, designer Wolf Kroeger and costume designer Marit Allen evoke aged exotic locales, rugged rural settings and dimly lit period interiors. A closing, aerial image has a breathtaking, spiritual beauty. show more

  • Sometimes less truly is more, and Love in the Time of Cholera is proof. show more

    I think all the Daytime soaps had better acting and production values then this slob.

    I was captured by the great cinematography, good acting, the architecture, the scenery and the nostalgic life style of the times were beautifully portrayed. I enjoyed the movie.

    This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I did not agree with the choice of actors, I didn't know if this movie was to be a drama or a comedy. The characters were not developed. The best part of the movie was the last 10 minutes and the scenery. Overall it was a very disappointing movie.
