Zapata without Songs
10 September 2003 | by (Monterrey,Mexico) – See all my reviews

Antonio Aguilar,the producer and star of this movie hire as director of this "superproduction" at the young director Felipe Cazals,who had only made independent good movies and in this his firs commercial one he failed in giving coherence to the script written by Aguilar himself and his usual director Mario Hernandez who could have given to the movie at least a bit less solemnity and may be also he could have made Aguilar sing at least a song,because this is the only movie I have seen in which Aguilar doesn't sing
