I've read quite a bit about the Franco-Mexican Wars and this movie seems like an accurate portrayal. The French conquered Mexico, so of course they're depicted negatively. Conquering entails massacring and torture, not just planting a flag and claiming the land. The movie isn't anti-foreigners because the Americans are painted in a positive light. The cinematography (shaky cam, like you see in The Hunger Games), set design, costumes, and music score are great. The love story advances the plot a little bit, so it doesn't feel forced. The ending has an inspirational tone that gives the movie purpose beyond endless bloodshed.
