Mexico anticipates the neo-realism wave attributed to Italy with this film
10 April 2020 | by JuguAbrahamSee all my reviews

Mexico anticipated neo-realism that is often attributed to Italy, with this work. Touches of Flaherty's "Man of Aran" are evident. Redes means "wave," the silent dark symbol/metaphor at the end of the film, while the sea had been so quiet and calm throughout the film. The music and camerawork are notable. The editing seems to be influenced by Eisenstein's work. A fascinating official debut from Zinnemann, though his unaccredited debut is a 1930 film called "Men on a Sunday"officially attributed to Robert Siodmak as the primary director. Perhaps the film reveals the real Zinnemann that one we glimpsed in "High Noon",often seen as Carl Foreman's real vision.
