Storyline

This is the story of three brave women; Patria, Minerva, and Maria Teresa, they were known as the Mirabal Sisters, born into a privileged family in the fields of Salcedo. At that time, the Dominican Republic was under the sway of the dictator, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo Molina, who has ruled the country with an iron fist since 1930. This is the story of how Minerva and her sisters dared to defy the mad dictator and his ruthless government, alongside some allies and family members as well. But this act of bravery and courage leads to tragic consequences, but an inspiration for the people. Written by Emphinix

Great!
7 October 2010 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Tropico de Sangre is the movie of reference on dictators in Latin America in the 50s.It is definitely one of Michelle Rodriguez best role and a good biopic.

PROS: Photography of Ricardo De Angelis is great. The original Music by Manuel Tejada , in 5.1, sounds impressive and is wonderfully mixed with merengues of that era. Acting by Michelle and Cesar Evora playing with poetry and action gives a great performance.The story is wonderfully told and the presence of real survivor Dede Mirabla brings a realistic touch.

CONS: Editing is too slowly paced, at least on the first part.The second part is better. Juan Fernandez as Trujillo doest not convince me. A few supporting actors give a poor performance. As a whole, this movie should be seen by everybody who cares about violence against women and is a powerful testimony of a very sad era of the American history.
