Tropical politics in Mexico

The movie offers a fine reflection of the relationship between local political bosses, the national politicians, the media and social movements in Mexico in the 70's and 80's.

The movie is based in a novel by Hector Aguilar, a fine historian and novelist who did heavy research to portray what can be considered a "study case" of politics in rural tropical Mexico.

The movie is able to keep that aspect of the original story, although it pays more attention to the love plots and political conspiracies involved, loosing some valuable aspects of the original history and the book.
