Storyline

Un Dorado de Pancho Villa opens on Pancho Villa addressing his faithful at the end of the Mexican Revolution. The story proceeds to follow the return of Aurelio Perez (a Major and one of the elite in Pancho Villa's forces) to his home town. On returning he finds that his mother has passed away and Amalia, the sweetheart he left behind is now married to the town's infamous Don Gonzalo; a deceitful man of power and wealth. Amalia, upset to find she has been tricked into marriage by Don Gonzalo enters into a lethal argument with him. Soon Aurelio is accused of the outcome of this fatality and is arrested by the town's commandant; a friend of the Don with his own grievances against Perez. Maria, an admirer of Perez sets out to help free him from his injustice. When her first plan is foiled, Maria takes matters into her own hands. She rescues Perez although only manages to improve the situation temporarily leaving the commandant hungry in his quest for revenge. Written by Eunkyung Choi and Kayleigh Sexton

The story of Aurelio Perez and his return to his home town after fighting in Pancho Villa's forces.
26 March 2009 | by (Cardiff, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To the modern day viewer expecting the film to be a depiction of the glory of the Mexican Revolution, this film may be somewhat disappointing. I found it to be flat and predictable (apart from a chaotic and bemusing part in which several people seemed to be attempting to drown one another). Although slow starting, the film does excellently portray the division of the protagonist's community due to their differences in support of the revolution. It also rather admirably shows the feeling of a new start or perhaps the awakening of a new Mexico depicted in the seemingly recurring cockerels within the film. However, this recurrence then seems to be counteracted by images of cockerels fighting, perhaps giving the film somewhat conflicting undertones adding another level to what it portrays.
