Excellent indeed
9 November 2010 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the 90s and a few days ago I found it in DVD. I had a very very good time watching it again and for sure is a must. Three of the actors died years ago (Cosme Cortazar - Alexander Milic - Luis Pardi)God be with them, is a great lost. The movie, the music, the direction etc. was superb. Hope you all can see it. I gave 10 /10. The location where this movie was filmed was in Estado Monagas - at the east of Venezuela. And the indians you see in the movie are real, they are the "Kariñas" who lived in that area for centurys. The photography is great, and the scenes where Father Santiago is taken by force and drug inside of a cave were filmed in "Cueva del Guacharo" also located in Estado Monagas at the entry of the cave called "Salón de Humboldt". Is a pity the budget was so little, if not we will enjoy the missing scenes of the battle between spaniards and indians. Hope that all those funs of good movies, see it.
