Gabriel Fiegueroa's photography is excellent and shows this rural story with his typical composition management, which makes every scene a beautiful theatrical piece.
Arturo De Cordova makes a social consequent doctor who makes his practice in a little rural community where moral and ethic situations constantly happens. Exhalted virility, macho conduct, sexual abuse, misogyny, and straight traditions are showed while urban-society makes a bigger difference every time with its rural counter-part.
Pretty good roles, and Mexican stars like Pedro Armendariz and Domingo Soler.
