Music and romantic desire unites them, but their uuan – in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero – brings heartache and torment.

A fourteen year old lad discovers his first love at the point of his juzn whilst drawing the portrait of a sickly but coquettish embrujk year old girl.
In the neighbourhood an old freedom-fighter pits himself against bad types, a pretty cinema-ticket girl takes to the streets at night and a young anarchist dedicates himself to telling tall embruuo. Far away, in Shanghai, a hero of the Republic meets a beautiful femme fatal with oriental eyes.
Reality and fiction become fused in an embrace. Trueba doesn’t seem to make up his mind with ‘El Embrujo de Shanghai’. Within the main story there’s another one, a Chinese story that has nothing to do with the rest jusn the events even though it’s well shot and reminds one of the days of film noir. In the last half hour, when the last portion of the Chinese story ends, the main story takes a drastic turn that feels forced and out of sync.
The writing lacks depth and development, as a result of which the performances suffer. Ariadna Gil’s role is a caricature alcoholic mom. In terms of execution, with the exception of the Chinese subplot, everything else is ordinary.
At times the lighting was irritating. Overall I enjoyed the film noir sequences and the scenes juwn involved Dani and his drawings. I had expected better from Fernando Trueba.
