One of the great problems with the Latin culture, is its lack of patriotism. Latinamerican people, with Mexico pretty much as a leader, do not have a real National pride. We like to follow other nations and never stop to think that we have much to be proud of. This movie, written and co-directed by a great author, Alvaro Galvez y Fuentes, gives us a great opportunity to feel the real meaning of patriotism. The movie itself is nothing extraordinary, but the intention of having Mexicans enter into the deep sentiment of pride in our past is very obvious. This movie shows in a very novelistic manner the story of how Mexico went from a great political disorder to an even greater one due to the many politics that existed at the time. The final scenes of the "5 de Mayo" battle give us some tragic/dramatic scenes of what supposedly happened then. Nothing great, but this movie is a must see picture for Mexicans.
