ENAMORADA
Directed by Emilio Fernández
Mexico, 1946; 99 mins, in Spanish with English subtitles. Rated PG

Enamorada will be introduced by Margaret Bodde, Executive Director of The Film Foundation

This wildly passionate and visually beautiful love story from director Emilio Fernández and cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa, a follow-up to their extraordinarily successful María Candelaria, remains one of the most popular Mexican films ever made. As critic Farran Smith Nehme wrote, it was “one of the biggest hits of Fernández’s career and a high-water mark for nearly everyone involved.” The romance between between a revolutionary General (Pedro Armendáriz) and the daughter of a nobleman (Maria Félix) set during the Mexican revolution (in which Fernández himself fought) was inspired by The Taming of the Shrew and, for the finale, by the end of Sternberg’s Morocco.

Restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive and The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project in collaboration with Fundacion Televisa AC and Filmoteca de la UNAM. Restoration funded by the Material World Foundation.
