In a summer film season teeming with futuristic, special effects-driven stories aimed at children--of all ages, perhaps--is there room for an erotic thriller based on a novel by one of the fathers of film noir? Michael Cristofer is counting on it. This film is about sexual obsession, and I had to cut, for my money, just too much of the sex.
But make no mistake — good, bad or utterly awful — Original Sin is not only trashy melodrama, it revels in the fact. Still, that scene is less likely to draw a gasp from the audience than a far more startling moment later in the film between Banderas and Thomas Jane Under Suspicion. The thing is, the whole film is so infused with the steaminess of its main characters and their perverse relationships not just Banderas and Jolie, but Jane as well that it hardly matters whether or not the characters keep their clothes on.

Lara Croft meets Zorro in this period thriller set in 19th century Cuba but shot in Mexico. Truffaut's film starred Catherine Deneuve as the mail-order bride who is not what she seems. Here she's played by Angelina Jolie, still sporting Lara's plummy English accent and required to do little more than pout seductively, and strip for the camera. Her easy mark is Luis Vargas Banderasa rich coffee merchant who has ordered a wife from America, "kind, true, and young enough to have children".

Original Sin is set in the late 19th century Cuba during the Spanish rule,   and flashes back and forth from the scene of a woman awaiting her execution by garrote while telling her story to a priest, to the actual events of that story. Julia alights from the ship, looking nothing like the photos she had sent prior to her voyage. Julia explains she wants more than a man who is only interested in a pretty face and that is why she has been deceptive—substituting a plain-looking woman's photo in place of her own picture.
But it is a story about love. Though that sounds contradictory, it actually makes sense. The film is certainly no love story, as it is completely devoid of romance or chemistry between its two leads. But it is ABOUT love — specifically, about the lengths to which people might go when they are madly in love.
