Adapted from the book, "Mexican Village," by Josefina Niggli, the film tells three interwoven love stories against the background of a feud between two villages. Cyd Charisse and Rick Jason are the lovers in a tender romance; Vittorio Gassman and Yvonne DeCarlo the lovers in a tragic romance; and Pier Angeli and Ricardo Montalban the lovers in a gay romance.

Opening credits: We wish gratefully to acknowledge the friendly cooperation of the Mexican Government and the genuine hospitality of the Mexican people, without whose assistance the filming of this picture in their country would not have been possible. See more »
This film is based on short stories by Josefina Niggli, whom I met when she was teaching at the Univeristy of North Carolina in Chapel Hill -- the plot outlined by the previous contributor is quite thorough, but does not mention the fine performance of Yvonne DeCarlo as Maria, of the River Road, and most especially does not mention the magnificent dance number performed by Cyd Charisse on a mountaintop in the rain -- unforgetable!!!
