One of El Indio's best

Many critics consider this tragic love story one of the best movies ever made by Emilio Fernández, along with "Flor Silvestre" and "Víctimas del pecado". Dolores del Río plays a wealthy woman for a change, and she is indeed better cast as the spoiled daughter of a miner than the suffering peasant María Candelaria, the icon of the "cine indigenista" for which Fernández is better remembered. Again her love for Pedro Armendáriz brings death, and the B&W cinematography by Gabriel Figueroa is remarkable.
