In Love and In Hate
Based on the 1949 novel WHERE THERE’S LOVE, THERE’S HATE, this film adaptation pulls of the same kind of staging and resolution found in the best of Agatha Christie’s novels. Passion and suspense abound in IN LOVE AND IN HATE and the excellent cast, led by Guillermo Francella (The Clan), brings serious sensuality and mystery to this asphyxiating film of alluring photography and locations.
Bad luck follows a tormented doctor to an isolated beach: there to escape heartbreak, he comes upon the very woman he was trying to leave behind. Mary is an outgoing 20-something who seduced him only to end their torrid affair when she had tired of the doctor. But Mary isn’t traveling alone. Her sister is there with her husband, who happens to be another one of Mary’s recent ex-lovers. Jealousy and passions abound on this fiery vacation until, one day, Mary turns up dead in her room. And everyone is a suspect because, at some point, everyone loved and hated Mary.
“Francella keeps testing and proving himself in film characters that he’d never tried before. (…) the technical aspects—set decoration, wardrobe, lighting, music and sound—far exceed the average in the local film industry.” – Pablo O. Scholz, Diaro Clarín
