It's amazing that the movie takes the Mexican Revolution seriously but at the same time doesn't show any battle at all, it's a clever movie because it was made in the middle of a historic period in which a revolutionary party was still in power and despite it, shows the way politicians survived very well the revolution keeping the legal power, money, and the factual power. The movie uses a town to represent an entire country, a person to represent a section of Mexico's population, and the life of anonymous people to depict the fate of the people we know survived the revolution or faced its aftermath. I like it because it's a social criticism performed by two comedians who did a spectacular work in the sci-fi political comedy "Mexico 2000" (1983). It is strange that this film appears every Revolution anniversary ignoring that the end is not historical but a social complaint.
