José Carlos Ruiz,
I found it very interesting. Lots of cultural information. The singing was fantastic. The clothing was very culturally relevant and informative. The status of the people in the rural areas was relevant. The story ends with all those involved returning to their former positions of social status and positions, a variant on the psychology of the Mexican dream as given by Juan Rulfo the famous Mexican author of this story. Although I don't agree with cockfighting it is part of the Latin American culture just like boxing is part of our American culture. I liked the singing of Lucha Villa she really belts it out. THe card shark portrayed by Soler is a great job.
