    Abstract:
    English abstract: 'Verses of Love', an Islamic film on the extended couple, features a melodramatic plot in which love triumphs after many difficulties, and the virtuous protagonists Fahri and Aisha are happy in their marriage, having shown the value of their Islamic faith amidst the trials of life—accepting these with sumbission, which is the sense of Islam that the film wishes to emphasize. We comment here on a number of religious, aesthetic and ideological issues partaining to the film. __________________________________________________________________________ Spanish abstract: ´Versículos de amor´, película islámica sobre la pareja ampliada, presenta un argumento melodramático donde tras muchas penalidades el amor acaba triunfando, y al final los virtuosos protagonistas Fahri y Aisha son felices en su matrimonio, tras demostrar el valor de su fe islámica en medio de las adversidades—aceptándolas con sumisión, que es el sentido del Islam que quiere enfatizar la película. Comentamos aquí algunas cuestiones religiosas, estéticas e ideológicas al respecto. ______________________________________________________________________ Keywords: Marriage, Islam, Submission, Ethics, Love, Couples, Polygamy, Indonesia, Ideology, Film studies
