Original Sin is a 2001 erotic thriller film-starring Antonio Banderas andAngelina Jolie. It is based on the novel Waltz into Darkness by Cornell Woolrich, and is-a remake of the 1969 François Truffaut film Mississippi Mermaid. The movie was produced by actress Michelle Pfeiffer‘s production company, Via Rosa Productions.
Original Sin is set in the late 19th century Cuba during the Spanish-rule, and flashes back and forth from the scene of a woman awaiting her-execution by garrote while telling her-story to a priest, to the actual events of that story.
Luis Vargas, a wealthy Cuban businessman, sends for American Julia-Russell to sail to his country to be his bride. Julia departs from the ship, looking nothing like the photos she’s sent prior to her voyage. Julia explains-she wants more than a man who is interested in a pretty face, and that’s why she’s been deceptive – substituting a plain-looking woman in-place of her own picture. Luis also admits to deception; he’s been misleading her into believing he’s a poor working man, instead of the rich owner of a coffee-company.
