Don't know why i cant find this movie anywhere and also don't know why anybody talks about this title which is definitely my favorite Mexican film. It has awesome takes which are very advanced for those years but they don't abuse of them, the acting is impressive because in those days all of the actors used to represent their characters like in theater, and coursing was practically forbidden (in fact, you can only find a few "forbidden" words in the movie) and if you're talking about workers from low class with a theatrical acting and no coursing its almost impossible to think about believable characters, but this title has one of the most natural characters I've seen in all the Mexican films ever (even today when they try to act as natural as they can and they can say anything they want they seem very plastic next to this film). The story (wich to me is the most important thing) is simple but complete, characters are very real, the plot is magnetic, a little dramatic but most of all human, a very human and real story, not pretentious at all, to me, and incredible one, leaves you with a nod in the throat. A MUST seen if you want to know the good Mexican films If somebody could tell me where to find it, i would thank that a LOT.
