Storyline

On a small Mexican island dwells a group of Indians who live in the traditional manner and who disdain outsiders. The beautiful Maclovia and the poverty-stricken Jose Maria are in love, but her father refuses to allow their marriage, or even any communication between them, due to Jose Maria's lack of means. The young man strives to educate himself and earn enough to purchase his own fishing boat in order to win her father's favor. At the same time, a batallion of soldiers is posted there, and the brutal sergeant develops eyes for Maclovia. The conflicts come to a head on the Night of the Dead. Written by GoblinHairedGuy

Romantic classic
31 May 2003 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

Certainly one of the most romantic films of the classic period, with full-bodied performances, charming detail, and glowing photography. The famed native Mexican director "El Indio" presents archetypal characters and situations without descending into melodrama, very similar in style to John Ford or Jean Renoir (particularly in the use of dramatic long shots and strikingly lit close-ups). Although he portrays the Indians as unspoiled and noble, he is not afraid to critique their own prejudices, as well as present both villainous and sympathetic white Mexicans.
