a short long Movie
22 April 2003 | by (Monterrey,Mexico) – See all my reviews

At the top of his career,Infante strarred this movie assigned by his principal producers,(Rodriguez Bros.).In this movie he worked together with the most prestigious and award wining team in the Mexican movies at that time,Emilio "indio"Fernandez(Director),Gabriel Figueroa(Photographer)and Mauricio Magdaleno(Script Writer),but it became clear that Infante did not fit in this team.Infante seems to be repressed in his performance,even out of his natural enviroment which were usually more pinturesque plots that highlited his charm and songs, much of this misunderstanding between the actor and the other team members could be the boring script,which resulted in a well filmed movie,but seems to be long despite its short duration(82 minuts aprox.)
