La fièvre monte à El Pao

Luis Buñuel Mexico, 1959

ramosbarajas's rating of the film The Fever Rises in El Pao

I have to say that the plot was confusing; maybe it had to do with the bad subtitles. I feel that the film lacks something... maybe somehow a story about the fate of a whole island-nation that focuses simply on the actions of three individuals renders it to be less effective. Maybe if I rewatch it with better subtitles my opinion will change but for the mean time, I shall be stuck wondering what really happened.
