A Movie “Gloria” 3/1/14

March 1, 2014

I saw this movie a little while ago. Gloria (Poulina Garcia) is a “woman of a certain age” with 2 grown up children and has an office job, but still wants to feel young. The story is based in the life of Santiago, Chile. Though lonely after the divorce, she makes the best of her situation and fills her night life seeking love at social dance clubs for single adults. She is NOT shy at all. She goes!! Her life changes the day she meets Rodolfo. Their intense passion (it looked to me as very Latino culture.. It may not happen in Japan so often) and love affair moves very quickly. She hopes and she is devastated. Going through this affair, she discovers her strength. At the end she acts triumphantly. It is directed by Sebastian Lelio. It is a fun movie!
