A film covering Villa's life
26 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a richly dramatised and watchable film, although since there are no English subtitles, it is absolutely necessary for the viewer to understand Spanish in order to enjoy it. This is a typical film of its genre in Latin America in the 70's. There is a lack of special effects, although, non-diegetic music is frequently used often helping to create an atmosphere at certain moments in the film. In order to fully understand and enjoy the film, perhaps a certain amount of knowledge and genuine interest about the revolution is necessary. Aguilar plays the role of Pancho Villa well and the viewer is taken through Villa's life during the revolution. "La Muerte De Pancho Villa" is an eventful film covering love, betrayal and adventure.
