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>

I loved it!!

No one else could have been a better Animas Trujano than Toshiro Mifune. This movie is well-made and Toshiro Mifune is brilliant in it. Animas Trujano wants so much to be regarded as "an important man" that he is willing to do anything to reach his goal, even if it means selling his daughter's baby to get a lot of money to buy his prestigious image. This movie is very powerful and it's very sad too. Animas Trujano is really a great film and I highly recommend it.
