Very good, but probably hard to see these days
9 April 2004 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film at UW Madison's cinematheque, a showcase for rare films. It was really, really good, from the interesting storyline to the acting, though the dubbing was rather poor.

The story is centered on Lupe, played by an actress of the same name. All of the characters, but her especially, come across amazingly through the years and the cultural differences (as i'm not Mexican, nor do i know much about them). Fernando de Fuentes was a great directer, and did a wide variety of films. His love stories, such as this, are uplifting in a refreshing way that not many newer films are.

I would highly recommend it if you ever get the chance!
