From his jail cell at Chihuahua's Military Hospital, Hidalgo begins to remember moments of his life, particularly his tenure as Parish Priest in the town of San Felipe Torres Mochas where he translated and produced the stage play "Tartuffe" by Moliere. During this time he fell in love with Josefa Quintana with whom he had three children and for whom he left the priesthood during a brief period in his life. Written by
This is a movie of Hidalgo not a film of the Mexican independence, this cause disappointment in the people that watch the movie thinking in battles, history and honor, this idea was inducted by marketing campaign. The movie has great and funny scenes but has too boring and too large parts. I'd like to see Hidalgo in Dolores beginning the independence but i had to see 40 min of Moliere's Tartufo. Serrano is a good director but he can't do a good job here. Demian Bichir and Ana De la Reguera were excellent in their characters, others like Andres Palacios, Manuel Landeta & Colombo had regular performances. I really don't like and not recommended to you, the best of the movie was the popcorn.
