One of my favorite "little" movies
4 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Number one the cast actually included Mexicans playing Mexicans (for the most part) unusual for the early sixties and they were poor but not evil. The kids were so good at establishing memorable believable characters you rooted for them all the way.The simple plot draws you into complicity with them as their innocence is tested by a chain of circumstances beyond their control or, more often, comprehension.Rafael Campos is particularly memorable to me because of that flashing wide smile and wonderful sweetness of nature.So tiny yet loaded with personality and charm. I am dying for the day this is available on DVD so I can show it to my children.(And experience it for myself again)
