When I say “Bella”…

…you probably think I’m talking about “Twilight”, right?


The “Bella” I’m talking about in this post is actually a jewel of an independent film that slipped through the cinema cracks of 2006.  I recognized exactly no one in the entire cast and was likewise completely oblivious of the director (Alejandro Gomez Monteverde) and any of his previous projects.

The story itself is very simple, a one day snapshot in the lives of two people: “He is a an international soccer star is on his way to sign a multi-million dollar contract when a series of events unfold that bring his career to an abrupt end. She is a beautiful waitress, struggling to make it in New York City, discovers something about herself that she’s unprepared for. In one irreversible moment, their lives are turned upside down… until a simple gesture of kindness brings them both together, turning an ordinary day to an unforgettable experience.”

A tad confusing with flash back scenes colliding with the current timeline of the movie, but any “Lostie” will easily get over that, lol! The real payoff, if you’ve paid attention to the entire story (and sub stories) is the last five minutes or so of the movie.

A word of caution:  This is a film for lovers of real cinema. If you’re a fan of likes of “Big Momma’s House” and “Dumb and Dumber”, this film probably isn’t for you.
