Set at the turn of the 19th century in South America, the industrial revolution began causing overcrowding and poor living conditions in the cities. This story follows a young telegraph boy, Fiorentino Ariza (Ugalde, Bardem), as he falls in Love In The Time Of Cholera. As soon as Fiorentino sets his gaze on beautiful but shy Fermina Daza (Mezzogiorno), he falls hopelessly under her spell. Considered not suitable for marriage to his lovely daughter, Fermina's father (Leguizamo) arranges to have her sent away to the country, hoping time and distance will erase Fiorentino's memory altogether. For over 50 years, Fiorentino bides his time, waiting for his one true love to return to him. Based on the novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. (Stacey Pendry)

Reason #55 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it has had a consistent editorial perspective since its inception: a no-compromise approach to making home theatre the best that it can be. I have read the magazine cover to cover since Issue 2. Despite staff and reviewer changes over the years, thanks to Gary's leadership this perspective has never changed. As new technologies are introduced, Widescreen Review always provides in-depth analyses of not just the technology itself, but the political and industry forces that may be forcing compromises in its development. You have always sounded the clarion call to stop compression madness or any other madness that may force us to accept a home theatre experience that falls short of what it could be. Thank you!
