Depiction of pheasant life during the Mexican revolution
8 January 2006 | by mazinger4See all my reviews

I was very pleased with the simplicity of the film and the deep Mexican sentiment related to those times. Many Mexican songs relate to the play and add taste to the movie. The historic contents are very valuable for people not familiar with the Mexican revolutionary era. Gabriela (maria Felix) is a very decisive and strong willed women that does not forget her poor roots and will not give up until reaching her wealth. One thing to watch out for is the closed captioned English subtitles, they do not always resemble or closely match what is truly being said by the actors. The word "Cascala" mentioned numerous times should be "Tlaxcala"( a central Mexico's state). nevertheless an awesome movie. This classic from Mexican director Roberto Gavaldón is a harrowing drama about the Mexican Revolution. Based on the novel by Miguel N. Lira, LA ESCONDIDA is an unflinching look at the scope and consequences of that monumental conflict
