As a result, her motivations are often seem somewhat mysterious. Josefina, despite being the Mayors virtual captive for most of the film, eventually musters the courage to escape his clutches in order to continue her relationship with the far kinder and more loving Antonio.
As she is the only major female character within the film, De heer portrays the innocence that is embedded within Josefina, a character that does not belong in the town of El Idilio nor with the presence of the injudicious Mayor and his regulations placed upon her.
Antonio, who founds it quite difficult to interpret some stories, is willing to try harder and harder in order for him to understand the significance of these love stories and their meaning. Through this, there is a sense of hope within the film.
Antonio uses Josefina as a guide, a conscience, a love story, in order to take action so he can eventually fulfill and turn this flashback into presence and reality.
Each and every character within the film differs from one another. Through the beliefs and values of the Shuar, to the way things get done with the European. Josefina is without doubt central to the plot and is further presented as a convincing and influential character as the film progresses.
The town is poor and run down, and the appearance of characters is just as alike. Her sense of confidence and independence eventually leads to her mustering courage to escape the harsh clutches in order to continue her relationship with the far kinder and more loving Antonio Bolivar.
Josefina, the films only female character, is a beautiful resident of the village despite being exploited by the Mayor as a prostitute. Her presence within the film informs readers that this film may end in a happy ending, despite the living and economic conditions characters are experiencing.
De heer finishes with Antonio returning to the village, thankfully without the presence of the Mayor.
Despite his past, Antonio wishes to live a life full of happiness and joy, living without regrets and staying out of trouble. Both characters, brought up in different way, experience a never-changing connection through their love for literature and one another, which leads into their own happily ever after.
Josefina is a headstrong yet romantic woman who is treated extremely cruelly by the unscrupulous Mayor, restricting Josefina while she yearns for freedom.
However, the presence of the Major is constantly restricting Antonio into being able to live a happy life. He is able to believe, interpret and understanding the meaning of life and love. De heer not only portrays the innocence of this female character, but through the fundamentally kind-hearted man Antonio Bolivar.
De heer exposes that we must appreciate the beauty for things as they are, and believe in order to move on into the future, because without believing, there will be no hope. For one to be able to move on, they use their past to make decisions. Josefina creates an atmosphere of love, teaching us the appreciation we must have over things, further teaching and showing Antonio what he has been longing for, — love.
While some use their past, others think of a happy future with someone they want to spend the rest of their life with, and this is what Antonio does. De heer depicts that both Josefina and Antonio are able to understand one another, which shows that Josefina is indeed central to the film. The presence of love stories is a complete contrast when compared to the town, but has the capability of changing characters for the better.
Throughout the film, readers are presented with the harsh life characters are facing, through their economic battles and living conditions in the Amazon.
