Movie Review: Of Love and Shadows (1994) [HD]
As a magazine journalist — an unusual profession for a woman with her privileged upbringing — she is constantly challenging the oppressive regime. When an assignment leads them to uncover an unspeakable crime, they are determined to reveal the truth in a national overrun by terror and violence. Together they will risk everything for justice — and ultimately to embrace the passion that binds them.
Of Love and Shadows by Isabel Allende, Review: Courage & passion
By Isabel Allende. Translated by Margaret Sayers Peden. Alfred A. In her nightmares, she sees ''ashen bodies in the Morgue; Javier Leal dangling like some grotesque fruit from a tree in the children's park; the endless lines of women inquiring about their desaparecidos. Evangelina Ranquileo, barefoot and in her nightgown, calling from the shadows. By the time we read this passage, we know that the grotesque events described belong to Irene's life, as well as to her dreams; and we are reminded again that the transactions between the extraordinary and the mundane, which occur in so much Latin American fiction, are not merely a literary technique, but also a mirror of a historical reality, in which the fantastic is frequently part of everyday life.
