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.
