Dolores del Rio,
i don't know if this is a great love story, i think it's more a story about sacrifice, what would you do for the one you love?, and in some way deals with the racism that exists in mexico, (even though some people think there's no racism in Mexico), like in all diverse societies there's racism, just like there's poor people, rich people, ignorant people and very well educated people, so you have this dirt pour mexican indian, who's not the most popular lad in town (you see even among his people there's envy and hatred for those a little different), the only things he cares about is putting food on his plate and flowers in the church altar, until one day he sees her, is she the virgin mary? an angel?, she's his goddess, he knows he's not worthy of her, so he decides to become worthy, use every ounce of his strength to give her something close to what she's used to being a rich spoiled bit**, (lady) from the big city, she could never see him as more than a friend, a companion (comparable to a pet, maybe a lap dog or something), he would sacrifice every thing for her, could she do the same?, could she really feel love for this poor dude, i like this movie because i feel for Tizoc, cast perfectly in the role of the bit**, sorry, Maria is the real life bit**, Maria Felix, and Pedro Infante (the mexican elvis) as Tizoc.
