The soundtrack to one of Latin America’s biggest films of last year, La Mujer de Mi Hermano has been released on Nacional Records in conjunction with the U.S. release of the film by Lionsgate. The film and soundtrack follow the success of other influential films/soundtracks that have defined the new wave of Latin American Cinema such as Amores Perros and Y Tú Mama También.
La Mujer de Mi Hermano has already proven to be a box office heavyweight in Mexico and throughout Latin America, and the soundtrack features the latest tastemakers in Latin Alternative and Electronica such as Aterciopelados frontwoman Andrea Echeverri, electronic darlings Nortec Collective, Sara Valenzuela, Mexican Institute of Sound, The Pinker Tones and NYC-based up-and-comers Pacha. Highlights of the album include Tanghetto’s new “electro tango” version of the seminal New Order favorite “Blue Monday” and a re-working of the classic La Ley track “Mentira” by Beto Cuevas, the vocalist from multi-Grammy-winning Latin rockers La Ley (who also appears in the film as a Catholic priest). The soundtrack also features original music composed by Angelo Milli.
The film, based on the novel of the same title by Jaime Bayly, features an all-star cast led by telenovela stars Barbara Mori, Christian Meier and Manolo Cardona, and is directed by Ricardo de Montreuil. After almost ten years of marriage, the stunningly attractive Zoë (Barbara Mori) realizes that her marriage to Ignacio (Christian Meier) no longer carries the passion and spark it once had. Emotionally adrift, she is left to search for those sensations once again, and soon finds herself seduced into the arms of Gonzalo (Manolo Cardona), her husband’s brother. At first, Zoë becomes reinvigorated by the romance, but her decision soon launches a series of events that drives these three people through a gauntlet of revenge, secrecy and despair that will unravel them all. La Mujer de Mi Hermano is a Stan Jakubowicz production directed by Ricardo De Montreuil.
