beautifully photographed film of a Juan Rulfo novel
14 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A typical Mexican motif of crying women and womanizing men...yet in this film, the characters have depth and purpose beyond the machismo . In this film, the trouble begins when husband has turned sickly and in a rare depiction of 'erectile dysfunction', in Mexican film, the wife turns to her randy brother-in-law for affection.

But, not immediately realized until deep into the movie during a "Peregrinacion", a pilgrimage,when the brother throws himself on her.

The film is beautifully lighted and photographed with panoramic scenes of the Mexican countryside and plazas. Using real time scenes of what looks like devotional pilgrims climbing to a shrine in Cholula, Mexico....
