This isn't the sort of movie anyone should watch for a good time. This is the sort of movie academics or Mexican cultural enthusiasts should watch to get an insight into Mexican life in the 70's. I'm currently living in Mexico, and to some degree many traits of the characters still exist in the people today. After having lived here and taken classes on the culture I can see where every trait comes from and it in fact was interesting because of that. It starts off with a slow procession because that is what many people still do during the week leading up to December 12th (Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe). The religious beginning is a god start to showing how the rest of the characters are affected by their faith. Women are expected to be pure and pious and so the over aggressive men feel like they have to maintain those characteristics in the women. It also is about the progress Mexican women were trying to make in their lives at the time whether it was defying their families wishes and marrying the "wrong man" or leaving their family all together. Basically, it is a movie about a poor family and a power hungry man who suddenly gets a step up in society. Unless you are into cultural diversity or old Mexico... rent Aliens or something because yes, you will be bored.
