Trivia

The closing scene showing Father Christopher's death was based on the story of San Cristobal Magallanes Jara, who was falsely accused of promoting the rebellion and was then executed without trial. His last words to his executioners were "I die innocent, and ask God that my blood may serve to unite my Mexican brethren." See more »

History in the making
9 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Revolutions are never easy. And sometimes they demand sacrifice. Sacrifice of many things to achieve something for a later generation. It's a tough movie to watch for many reasons, but it's also not taking prisoners (literally at times), which you might like about it or dismiss. But that's how things can go down, when there is uproar.

We might live in societies today that don't have to fight for certain things, but it's not too much of a stretch to see why and how some had to fight for freedom of speech or religion or other things. The movie depicts a real life event/incidents, which might appall some viewers from the get go, but if you like Drama and History in general, this might be for you. I haven't read too much about how things went down exactly, but I reckon this movie made me aware of a chapter I hadn't had heard about before ...
