Storyline

Animas Trujano is a colorful but irresponsible Indian in a small Mexican village. He hopes above all things someday to be chosen mayordomio of his village, a place of great honor usually conferred upon the wealthiest and most respected citizens. Animas has a loyal wife, but cheats on her and gambles away every cent they raise. Chances arise for Animas to turn over a new leaf and even hope realistically for the honor of mayordomio. But will Animas behave responsibly enough to take advantage of these opportunities? Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Impressive!
7 June 2003 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Being a long time Toshiro Mifune's fan, I really wanted to watch this movie. Finally, I caught it on cable TV. Mifune's performance is really brilliant. I have no idea how Ismael Rodriguez came to the idea of Mifune playing a Mexican indian (Mifune didn't speak Spanish at all!)but he is just perfect for the role. I mean, I hardly can imagine somebody else doing Animas Trujano. This man is so bad and yet you are moved to sympathy at the end. I loved the serene, noble wife portrayed by Columba Dominguez.

In a sentence: this movie should be highly recommended. Bravo!
