Jesus is a horse breeder, providing the federals and the revolutionists with horses during the revolution, trying his best to steer clear of politics of which he has little interest. Meanwhile Jesus' heart is set on two things; a wild stallion 'Prieto Azabache' and a beautiful singer named 'Genoveva Alarios'. He pursues both but after being rejected by Genoveva decides to settle for the horse as a companion. Later, he gets into trouble for supplying horses to both the revolutionists and the federals and has to face the prospect of execution. Yet little did he know that previously through an act of kindness, he had saved the life of young Pancho Villa, formerly known as Doreteo Arango, which in turn gave Villa the same opportunity to spare Jesus' life. They later become great friends and Villa permits Jesus to carry on breeding horses providing he also works for him temporarily as his spy.

Enjoyable film portraying one man's experience of the Mexican revolution
26 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an easygoing and enjoyable film based on one mans life during the Mexican revolution, rather than a focus on the battle between the Federales and the revolutionaries. This should be interesting to watch as it should gives us a broader perspective of what the everyday citizen had to deal with during the that traumatic time, however Aguilar has given us a prolonged interpretation of a man's life and the love for his horse and woman, which lacks originality. Nevertheless, a rather comical view can be taken on this film, with its melodramatic long-shots of the characters faces entwined with dramatic music, and the over-exaggerated use of diegetic music. Also adding to the comedy are the somewhat illiterate subtitles. All in all this film projects comedy as well as corruption and trauma thus making it an overall realistic projection of the revolution.
