Strange little film
4 January 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Here's a cinematic obscurity I'd like to know more about. This gentle but disturbing tale of life in rural Mexico was produced, written and directed by Pancho Kohner---the first work, in fact, of the man who went on to bring us many a Charles Bronson epic, including The Evil That Men Do and Death Wish IV. One gets the feeling that the film may have been made as a favour to John Huston, who obviously had an interest in the works of B. Traven (e.g., Treasure of the Sierra Madre). Katy Jurado is here and is fine as usual, Charles 'Black Gestapo' Robinson is a bland hero, and the only other name I recognised is that of Mexican film star Chano Urueta, known to most Americans due to his work in films like The Brainiac and The Living Head. The story itself is typically Travenish but doesn't have much bite. I would love to see the West German film Das Totenschiff, based on his very odd novel Death Ship, so if anyone out there has a copy let me know!
