Beautiful love story, 3 August 2005
Author: Andres Cardenas from Mexico

When love has been betrayed, there is nothing else you can do but seek into the interior of yourself to try to find peace in your own denial of love itself. A person may try to forget its own meaning of life but you can never forget that you are a human being that is always susceptible to love. This person thought that he could not be a normal human being anymore, but at the end, it was his human side that came forward to portray to everyone that wanted to hear his story, that love will prevail over any other feeling. This movie is all about love,love in a manner, tragic, but none the less love that for good or for bad has been perceived as such by a person. This story happens in a remote site at the jungle of the Guyanas or Venezuela. Like many Mexican movies from the middle of the 20th Century this one has a tragic ending that leaves you with a sad mood. This is the type of movie that you can watch several times and still love it.
