Excellent Mexican Revolution drama, intended to revive the "Golden Age" of Mexican Cinema.
3 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the distinction of being Mario Hernández's first released film (his debut film "La yegua colorada" had been filmed before this one but was released a little later in 1973), "Valente Quintero" is an excellent film about the Mexican Revolution, although it also takes place during the post-Mexican Revolution period. The epic battle scene in the beginning is very noteworthy. This drama is illuminated by its all-star cast: special performances by Saby Kamalich, Narciso Busquets, Sara García, Cornelio Reyna, Enriqueta Jiménez, and Flor Silvestre really emote comedy and entertainment to this film. Meanwhile, the main and typical stars (e.g. Antonio Aguilar, Eleazar García, Alejandro Reyna) also give great performances, especially Alejandro Reyna who in this film portrays a stoic but amusing drunkard doctor; an interesting contrast to his past roles as the comic sidekick of Antonio Aguilar. The film is produced and co-written by Antonio Aguilar. "Valente Quintero" premiered in various Mexico City movie theaters on April 12, 1973 and screenings remained for six weeks, a moderately good box-office hit.
