It is May 1520 in the vast Aztec Empire one year after the Spanish Conqueror Hernán Cortés' arrival in Mexico. "The Other Conquest" opens with the infamous massacre of the Aztecs at the Great Temple of Tenochtitlan [what is now called Mexico City]. The sacred grounds are covered with the countless bodies of priests and nobility slaughtered by the Spanish Armies under Cortés' command. The lone Aztec survivor of the massacre is a young Indian scribe named Topiltzin [Damián Delgado]. Topiltzin, who is the illegitimate son of the Aztec Emperor Moctezuma, survives the onslaught by burying himself under a stack of bodies. As if awakening from a dream, the young man rises from among the dead to find his mother murdered, the Spanish in power and the dawn of a new era in his native land. A New World with new leaders, language, customs... and God. Representing the New Order is the Spanish Friar Diego [José Carlos Rodríguez]. His mission is to convert the "savage" natives into civilised ... Written by

This film is one that has been long overdue. As a retired captain/World War II veteran and professor, anyone would agree with me that this film was written, directed and produced by the eye of a genius. The location, the props, the set design and wardrobe, not excluding the actors were all outstanding. Furthermore, the message is one of tolerance, respect and peace for all of humanity. Where America is in the midst of youth violence, hatred and racial tension, truly this film is a must for all people who work towards peace and harmony for our future leaders. It is this type of film that delivers a message of unity---which can be spelled UNITED STATES, which is what we are and what we must be true to. Most importantly, it truly is a riveting piece of art, which triggers your imagination---it is a MUST see!!!
