Flor silvestre

Emilio Fernández Mexico, 1943

ramosbarajas's rating of the film Wild Flower

The first film where Fernandez collaborated with his magical team of Figueroa, Magdaleno, Armendariz and del Rio. The dialogue and metaphors concerning individuals and the land are extremely memorable. They are great lines, which would be echoed in the director's future films. Even if it's a little shaky, it's a great start. The cast gives solid performances, and there is even a nice cameo from Fernandez himself.
