A narrow-minded movie
4 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a superb production, but lacks of tolerance or flexibility or breadth on its view. The photography and locations were chosen beautifully. The story is based on revolution days in Mexico. The movie seems to have been directed as an anti-catholic propaganda against "cristeros" by evangelic fundamentalist, and the use of icons and dialogs are so obvious and deliberated that should be seen as educational essay of movie mistakes that shouldn't been done by a director. I think the movie make conclusions by its own an doesn't allow to make your own. It should have been a interesting movie but you get bored after the first 5 minutes.
