A star-crossed couple fights against prejudice and hate in rural Mexico
2 February 2015 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

The plot is loosely based on the Shakespeare drama Romeo and Juliet, transferred to the early XX Century rural areas of Mexico. This movie, shot in Mexico's Film Golden Age portrays two of the biggest stars of Mexico. The superb actor and singer Jorge Negrete, and, in her debut, Maria Felix, known to later generations of Latin Americans as "la Doña", who would become the greatest female star of Mexican cinema. Since the plot comes from the Shakespearian tragedy, the outcome is predicable. But the movie has very good acting and a nice rhythm. I particularly liked the dance scene, with good choreography and compelling acting of both stars, who later in their lives, would become a married couple. This is a good, if not superb, movie, which would be very interesting to people interested in the Mexican cinema history.
