This haunting and doomed but reverbrating renvenge drama set in the lush green vistas of colombia,south america is one of the great classics of french cinema adapted from the masterpiece written by Garcia Marquez .
This harrowing novel by Gabriel Marquez is brought to life by Franceso Redi in this unforgettable screen chronicle ,it is set in a Latin american village where a man called Nasar is knifed to death in the early hours of a hot and humid ,sultry colombian morning in cold blood .
The whole village is anticipating the event about to happen and nobody does anything to prevent it ,the movie is a testament to human failure to prevent evil and crime from taking place when you humanity posesses the full knoweldge of the consequences of what your inaction will result in and has the resources to prevent the offence but remains silent in complicit assent ,as this becomes a death foretold , a crime predicted yet allowed to happen , thus condoning the misdeed itself , and what can be more heinous indeed.
The story takes place as a bride[ornella muti] is sent back home on her wedding night ,as she is not a virgin,by her husband,and it is assumed instantly that the culprit is Nasar [antony Delon ],son of alain delon ] .
