Roselyn Sanchez (Rush Hour 2, TV’s “Without a Trace”) plays Amaryllis Campos, a young, classically trained Latina ballerina, who dreams of leaving her impoverished home in Puerto Rico to pursue fame and fortune as a dancer. Amaryllis heads for New York City, where she is forced to work in a seedy strip club to make ends meet. Setting audiences afire with her erotic moves, Amaryllis quickly becomes the strip club’s hottest attraction and falls in love with the best customer (D.B. Sweeney), who wants to take Amaryllis to live with him abroad. Finally winning an audition for Broadway production, Amaryllis must now decide between true love and realizing her dream of becoming a star.
“Yellow” is not the film I thought it would be. It was an incomplete film. The characters did not find any cohesion with each other. These factors created a film that was messy and did not work.
“Yellow” felt that it was incomplete. Instead of having a flowing storyline it was scene that jump to each other not connecting the dots. You never get a sense of the timeframe of the film. This makes it hard for people to follow the story.
The supporting characters did not work well together. The characters never had any purpose with each other and seemed to be there just to kill an hour and a half. The dialogue makes them seem disingenuous to each other. They did not make sense in the plot of “Yellow”.
This is a truly bare DVD. It only has an interview with Roselyn Sanchez and a few deleted scenes.
I give it 2/5 Gs.
