This is not just a story about love, but separation, rivalry, betrayal and hope; universal elements that are easy for us all to identify with. The backdrop of the Mexican Revolution provides the perfect landscape for this tale, as it evokes a sense of romance and adventure; the passion of the revolution. Despite this, the matter of the revolution runs secondary to the main themes of the film; more than anything the story seems to simply coincide with current events. However, it does add to the film's overall atmosphere and reminds us of the human element of conflict and of man's capacity for hope in the midst of so much adversity. Some of the characters are stereotypical, some not so, but the cast is superb and Antonio R Frausto's performance is as captivating as ever. I really enjoyed this film and I strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested in Mexican cinema, and of course, love and its adversaries.
