Might be because of this beautiful Latina that has now giving you a ticket for going through this red light. I fairly enjoy this film and I can see why this movie can be overlook by the masses. Beside this movie being too predictable it was not very creative and only shows Roselyn's body as a pick up for the movie. Honestly it could have been a lot better but I don't blame the actors I blame the director.......... and the story. Roselyn is much more then this and should of pick up a better movies instead of the money offer to her. Can't say much about this film but here it goes. The follow-up to his feature debut, director Alfred De Villa's Yellow is drama starring Roselyn Sanchez as Amaryllis, an aspiring dancer trying to make it in New York City. After her father unexpectedly commits suicide, Amaryllis leaves her native Puerto Rico for the Big Apple with dreams of stardom. Naturally, she meets more than a little adversity and soon finds herself working as a stripper to make ends meet. But with a cadre of supportive new friends and ample moxie, she just might beat the odds.
Yellow was intended to show off its star and producer, Roselyn Sanchez, specifically her looks, dancing and acting ability. As for her looks, Sanchez worked very hard toning up for the role, and that part worked. She did look good, what we could see of her. But the way to show that would have been tasteful nudity in good light. Both nude scenes are dark. Strike one. None of the dancing scenes were long enough to judge her ability, and she was shot from the waist up during many of them. Strike two. As for her acting, she failed to show any dynamic range at all in what should have been a very emotional role. Strike three.
The treatment (described above) is tired, but workable. So why didn't it work? First of all, major plot points and entire sub-plots were removed from the film, stranding some characters, and not explaining the actions of others. Second, the cutting included way too many jump cuts, music video style. Third, the curve of excitement was missing, just as Sanchez' dynamic range was absent. There was nothing wrong with the cinematography, but the editing was dreadful and I'm sorry to say that this film was not a GO.
