Love story
15 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Canción del alma is certainly an alternative film on the Mexican Revolution. The heroine being an over-romantic and very un-Mexican character, we are swept along with the convincing love story that perhaps the contemporary audience would have enjoyed far more. The good vs. bad binary is established, the good being the upper-class Federal faction, and the bad being a stereotypical drunken Salgado; the predictable lecherous campesino-type. The film's resolution, however, is satisfying, but it has to be in order to compensate for the lack of thematic depth. It is an enjoyable watch but is obviously compromised by its faithfulness to the government portrayals of the Mexican Revolution.
