Raise the yellow flag

Love in the Time of Cholera.

19th century Cartagena. Lowly telegraph office messenger boy falls for society babe. There are trials (he has to have sex with lots of other hot babes) and tribulations (she has to marry a doctor) before finally in old age they’re joined together. Now the owner of a riverboat company, he orders the captain of one of his vessels to raise the cholera flag so that he and the love of his life can have the ship to themselves so that they can lie in bed, struggling to recall what you can do there – apart from sleeping.

Pretty cinematography. Needs editing for length. The sort of film which ends up being video wallpaper. Xavier Bardem is younger than me, yet always manages to look older.
