Blood, death and personal reasons
4 July 2011 | by abelposadasSee all my reviews

A very violent movie about the post Mexican Revolution. Ideals have been forgotten and there are no aims either. Only personal reasons at least from the rich and former powerful farmers. The other ones are not better. Just brute force. An interesting gist about this movie would be something like "What is a revolution for?". The splendid cinematography of Gabriel Figueroa is one of the major assets as well as the presence of Maria Félix in her last movie. Her last look at the camera shows her as a complex woman whose inner devils are impossible to tame.

There is a long line of Mexican movies with this theme but this is the bloodiest one. There is an interesting question to be asked: that revolution froze all the possibilities of Mexico to be a real powerful country?
