The Marriage Movie Review

jabor porto arnaldo paulo

The Marriage may just be the most vicious movie ever made regarding that particular institution, yet Arnaldo Jabor's ability to scrape close to the very core of human feelings is not only dazzling, it's right on the money. The neurotic, tempestuous music of Astor Piazzola emphasizes to perfection the feverish emotions in Jabor's film. Jabor's flamboyant style, given full rein in The Marriage, is never gratuitous, being well balanced by the presence of leading man Paulo Porto. Porto seems perpetually bewildered by his own responses to events as much as he does by the wild circumstances which tend to surround him. Jabor also directed 1973's All Nudity Will Be Punished, a dark love story. Less successful was Jabor's 1981 film, I Love You, with Sonia Braga. AKA: O Casamento.
