a great romantic story
12 April 2002 | by alonsofSee all my reviews

Tizoc a great unknown movie, is one of the great romantic films of all times . Two great stars shine in the beautiful and poignant images of this mexican tragedy : Pedro Infante, singer , mexican icon , who dies in 1957 , victim of a plane crash , and María Felix ,eho has died in april 2002 . She was one of the most beautiful women of the planet , better konwn as "La Doña " o "María Bonita " . Her international career includes films directed by Luis Buñuel, Rafael Gil, Jose Luis Saenz de Heredia and Jean Renoir. "Tizoc " tells an impossible love between and indian and a dame . Love, death and sacrifice , aeternal themes of human beings .
