Gloria by Sebastián Lelio, 2014 (R)

with Paulina García, Coca Guazzini, Fabiola Zamora, Sergio Hernández,  Diego Fontecilla, Alejandro Goic, Marcial Tagle, Antonia Santa María, Luz Jimenez, Liliana García, Hugo Moraga

Gloria is a "woman of a certain age" but still feels young. Though lonely, she makes the best of her situation and fills her nights seeking love at social dance clubs for single adults. Her fragile happiness changes the day she meets Rodolfo. Their intense passion, to which Gloria gives her all, leaves her vacillating between hope and despair -- until she uncovers a new strength and realizes that, in her golden years, she can shine brighter than ever.

This was supposed to be the best comedy of the month... Oh well, expectations were high I agree, but this wasn't quite the movie I expected. It goes through an interesting journey, definitely, funny I don't know, I was most of the time feeling awkward for her. It is definitely a journey about being comfortable with oneself, and goes thought stage of finding the others, learning of the others and building your own path... Thing is, perhaps you need to be "of a certain age" to find the journey realistic... I don't know, I just didn't get into her character, and didn't sympathize whatsoever.
