"Azalia", An unexpected Arturo De Cordova's love in a wild selvaged place...
This interesting film was filmed in 1947. The same year, that Arturo De Cordova filmed a great production called: "La Diosa Arrodillada" with Maria Felix too. The reason for what I'm reminding this film it's because against "La Diosa...", "Algo Flota Sobre el Agua" shows the kind of films where Arturo always interpreted the starring rolls between wild selvaged landscapes: Veracruz is the scenery in this picture, where Manuel (Arturo De Cordova) married with Carmina; fell in love with a precious young girl called "Azalia" (Elsa Aguirre), who intended suicide in the river near Manuel's house... The play roll shows the regular problems and circumstances of a group of fishers that tried to make an independent living without the rules of the owner. The film has an approximated running time of 120 minutes. Maybe too long for that decade... Good Luck!
