Colombian superstar Manolo Cardona is pictured above at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival premiere of UNDERTOW (the critically-acclaimed international hit that went on to take home the Sundance World Cinema Audience Award for Best Drama and was Peru’s official submission to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film). Hollywood movie fans may recognize Cardona from his appearance in BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA. A major heart-thob and soap opera star in Columbia, it’s not a surprise to hear that Cardona was also named one of the “50 Most Beautiful” people by People en Espanol magazine in 2003.
Here’s a bit more about the film (coming to Blu-ray and DVD from Wolfe on June 1):
In a tiny traditional Peruvian seaside village, Miguel (Christian Mercado), a young fisherman, and his beautiful bride, Mariela (Tatiana Astengo), are about to welcome their first child. But Miguel has a secret: he´s in love with Santiago (Manolo Cardona), a painter who is ostracized by the town because he´s gay. As this strikingly original romantic drama unfolds, Miguel must find the courage to be true to himself. His bittersweet, and ultimately uplifting personal journey exemplifies the essence of what it means to be a man.
