La boda1964

  • 3.3
Luciano, twice her age, wants desperately to marry Iluminades, one of the village's beautiful young available daughters. They call him the "Black Man," the "Outsider," and most of the town does not want the wedding to take place. A very rich man, Luciano made his money as a black slave trader but still manages to win over Iluminades' mother and father and some of the village's people with his money. Pasqualon and his comrades are so angry that they contact Pasqualon's brother Pepe and Iluminades' ex-boyfriend to try and stop the wedding. Although the ceremony perseveres, the posse will stop at nothing to see that the marriage is terminated. The steadfast allegiance attitude of the compadres spirals to a tragic twisted ending.

This is one of those films that has your stomach in knots, as from the beginning, it is clear that impending tragedy is on the way.

In patriarchal Argentina, a rich former slave trader, Luciano,asks the father of the village beauty for her hand. Although the father is aware of the problems that will be caused by an "outsider" wedding his daughter, he cannot refuse Luciano's offer of money. The obedient daughter agrees to the marriage--but she is attracted to the man, not the money. The brother of her former boyfriend does not intend to let the wedding go smoothely. This is clear from the outset. A very well done film that will grip you to the end.
