Excelente pelicula
9 February 2011 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

By chance, walking in Mexico City and I decided to go to the movies my wife to enjoy any movie interesting. Upon arrival at Cinemark Reforma 222 we got the surprise that was the premier of this film we decided to enjoy along with the actors, producers and the director himself.

This movie goes back to the eighteenth century before independence Mexico, is divided into 3 acts as divide the plays, each event represents the culmination of a stage, which is described with exquisite detail, full of emotions that make us the spectators go live each stage of this colorful history.

Throughout this film we go back we will return to the roots of New Mexico, where a mixed culture misti the ancient Mexican religion that blends Catholicism with generates a new customs and very Mexican Catholicism and rites customs transported back centuries by native cultures Mexican.

This film is different, and really recommend it, and if you know the Mexico City, I like more because the whole history corresponds to sucite facts that the same streets and buildings big city.
