One thing that we can say for sure, about movies from the middle of the 20th century, is the fact that sex and violence was never the central theme of these. The stories may seem a bit outdated by today's standards, but nevertheless these is the way humanity lived and what they believed in those days. This story is a typical one that more than likely could have happened in those days, specially in Mexico, which was still a very innocent society, not yet fully influenced by outside sources, which had just started to change their behavior basically towards the end of WWII. The story is very intense, the acting is pretty good too. I have no idea whether this movie had any nominations, but it is very worthwhile to watch. Human misery is always something that impacts all audiences, and brings forth our humanity.
