Fernández’s last great film focuses on the struggles of the agrarian underclass in the story of a young man, returning from an unjust prison sentence, who finds his desire to be a simple farmer thwarted by small-town politics, family treacheries, and romantic rivalries.

This film is pure poetry. The sequences flow by magically, no moments are wasted, and then they fade like a dream. This film is an ode to the land and to the people who come from the land, beautifully illustrating the fundamental roots of Mexican Identity.
Une émouvante et fort intense production mexicaine, entre limpide romantisme exacerbé et puissant mélodrame sentimental qui confirme l'excellence d'un cinéaste incontournable qui donna ces lettres de noblesse à la prolifique cinématographie de son pays, malheureusement peu diffusée sur les écrans de l'hexagone... www.cinefiches.com
