An enjoyable and interesting film
3 September 2007 | by ver_sacrumSee all my reviews

I happened on this film while channel-surfing and it caught my eye because the leading man was sitting on an unusual Harley Model K motorcycle. Azteca America showed a nice sharp print, but didn't even list the title in their schedule on our cable TV carrier. Even with my limited school Spanish knowledge I was able to jump in and follow the story. If this is Emilio Fernández work in his decline, I will certainly make a point of trying to see some of his "peak" films in the future. There is always the language problem and I think someone should figure out that all Mexican cinema (not just the "art" films) could be a lot more accessible and popular beyond the Latin markets in the USA and worldwide if the export video version had English (maybe German and French in PAL/SECAM copies) captions built-in.
