Enjoy this visually breathtaking romance in which a poor fisherman finds his love tested by a rival.
Dir Emilio Fernández
With María Félix, Pedro Armendáriz, Carlos López Moctezuma, Columba Domínguez
Emilio Fernández and cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa sought to make films that felt uniquely Mexican in their style and expression of national themes – something that’s beautifully realised in this visually breathtaking romance set on Janítzio island, amid Mexico’s indigenous population. Armendáriz plays a poor fisherman whose love for the beautiful Maclovia (Félix) is rejected by her father, and tested by the arrival of a soldier.
