Love in the Time of Cholera

Love in the Time of CholeraStone Village Pictures presents one of the greatest love stories ever told, based on the timeless masterpiece by Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez...

Spanning a half-century in the complex, magical and sensual city of Cartagena, Colombia, the sweeping romantic epic tells the story of a man who waits over fifty years for his one true love.

Academy Award nominee Javier Bardem stars as Florentino Ariza, a poet and telegraph clerk who discovers his life's passion when he sees Fermina Daza (Giovanna Mezzogiorno) through the window of her father's villa. Through a series of passionate letters, Florentino gradually awakens the young beauty's heart, but her father (John Leguizamo) is furious when he learns of the affair, and vows to keep them apart forever.

As the years go by, Fermina marries the sophisticated aristocrat Dr. Juvenal Urbino (Benjamin Bratt), who has brought order and medicine to Cartagena, stemming the waves of cholera that mysteriously besiege the city. He sweeps her away to Paris for years, and when they start their life together back in Cartagena, she has all but forgotten her first love.

But Florentino has not forgotten her. Now a wealthy shipowner, Florentino engages in a series of affairs but still yearns for Fermina. His heart is patient, and he will wait a lifetime for the chance to be with her again.
