|Overview||:||Watch Full Lope (2010) : Online Movie A chronicle of the life of Spanish playwright and poet Lope de Vega, who dominated Spain’s early Golden Age of Theatre in the 16th Century. Lope returns home from war and enters the theatre world when a producer’s beautiful daughter takes a shine to him. They embark on a passionate affair as his plays begin to win popular acclaim.|
Lope is a movie with a great cast and ambience placed in the golden age of the Spanish literature. However, it commits two important mistakes that share with another great production like "Alatriste". First, the story modifies substantiatly the real biography of the main character, trying to make the plot easier while mixing several episodes of his life. It doesn't work. Second, the main character is performed by an Argentinian actor that doesn't speak a standard Spanish from Spain, in contrast with the rest of the cast. That makes the most important part of the film not credible. Maybe this second mistake is not so important for the international audience but, for the Spanish one, which I assume is the main target, makes the film a disaster.
