The Golden Age of Mexican Cinema spanned three decades and produced comedies, romances, and dramas. We will play “Enamorada” (1946) on May 22nd. See a summary below:

“Enamorada” is a 1946 Mexican film directed by Emilio Fernández and starring María Félix and Pedro Armendáriz. Set in the early 20th century during the Mexican Revolution, the film tells the story of a wealthy and arrogant landowner named José Juan Reyes (played by Armendáriz) who finds himself falling in love with Beatriz Peñafiel (played by Félix), a strong-willed and passionate revolutionary.

The film explores the themes of love, class differences, and political turmoil. José Juan, known for his ruthless treatment of the lower class, becomes infatuated with Beatriz when she saves him from a group of rebels. Despite their ideological differences and social barriers, their intense attraction grows, leading to a complex and tumultuous relationship.

As the revolution intensifies and the rebel forces approach the town, José Juan is faced with a choice between his love for Beatriz and his loyalty to his social class. Beatriz, on the other hand, is torn between her love for José Juan and her commitment to the revolutionary cause.

“Enamorada” showcases the power dynamics between the wealthy and the working class, as well as the transformative nature of love in the face of social and political upheaval. The film’s stunning cinematography, emotional performances, and gripping storyline made it a critical and commercial success, solidifying its place in Mexican cinema history.

With its exploration of love and politics, “Enamorada” remains a timeless classic that highlights the complexities of human relationships and the impact of historical events on personal lives.
