Overall, a very boring and uninteresting movie. The whole story could have been told in around 10% of the time with the proper timing, and no insight of characters is ever shown, let alone hinted at. It is just like an old-time movie with the good ones and the bad ones, with very crude stereotypes of the Purhépechas and the Spaniards (ie, the good ones and the bad ones, in case you'd wondered). Worse yet, since the film lacks a sound fiction plot, I looked for some serious re-enactment of history or faithful depiction of the customs and facts of the peoples depicted, to no avail whatsoever. I'm still searching for a good movie about Pre-Columbian peoples without so many clichés as this one and others, showing the real psychological and cultural clash between two cultures that finally merged into our modern Mexican culture, a movie beyond the images of "peaceful" Indians and the blood-thirsty Spaniards that all these films display.
