La celestina adaptada online dating
Calisto's faithful and humble servant Pármeno (Jordi Mollà) fails in his attempts to block the spells delivered by Celestina but to no avail.
Once the magic is in effect the worlds of each person fall apart.
Anyway the old lady wants the reward that the guy said he was gonna give her, but he doesn't.
So she curses him, he ends up killing her by two accompanying men, and the daughters are pissed off.
Despite boasting a cast of some of the finest actors in Spain, the dialogue is such a mishmash of old rhythms and contemporary expressions that much of the magic is lost.
But Calisto see Celestina as his last hope for love and happiness and so pays her to work her magic on Melibea, which she duly does.
Throughout the movie it is the servants & witch that power the story & not the lead actors.
I can't rate it 3 stars but I can't rate it 4 either.
But it is interesting to see Penélope Cruz, Juan Diego Botto, Maribel Verdú, Jordi Mollà and Nancho Novo in their early stage of development.
This is an escapist period piece that could have been so much better, but even in this state it is entertaining.
