Lovesickness (Maldeamores)

whatever your age, love's a pain in the ass


From Executive Producer Benicio Del Toro, Puerto Rican gem Maldeamores has become the biggest local hit in the island’s history and was released in North America by Maya Releasing.

An all-you-can-eat buffet of love of all kinds and at all ages set in the backyards of Puerto Rico. A child’s first kiss. A man who can’t accept rejection. An unfaithful husband. A geriatric love affair. Passion defeats reason again and again in this film about the eternal masochistic search for love.
