Ana de la Reguera,
Kate del Castillo,
This documentary was powerful in its message delivered by Mexican contemporary and folkloric sounds. It portrays the Mexican psyche that was written by Octavio Paz's study of the Mexican in the book called "El Laberinto DE La Soledad". Artistically the documentary is spot on. Music is breathtaking and powerful. The images just blew me away , especially in HD format. Relax and play the music loud and u will receive the full benefits of the film. Listen to the beautiful sound of the Spanish and ancient Indian languages and u will see and hear a Mexico that the Gringo tourist will never hear on their visits to Acapulco and Cancun.
In the end, which i realized that in my travels of Mexico in the 70's , Mexico is a very violent and mystical place on earth.. I like it that way and at the end of this documentary i realized that it will never change. So what !
