| La Escondida
La Escondida (The hidden one) is one of the most famous films directed by Roberto Gavaldòn and was deservedly shown at the 1956 Cannes film festival. Its personal and fascinating portrayal of one woman's journey through the Mexican revolution is both captivating and enlightening. The film provides the viewer with a political insight and background into the conflict. The lead performances by Felix and Armendariz are convincing making the plot enjoyable and easy to follow. The use of various well-known Mexican corridos adds depth and sentimentality to the storyline. La Escondida adopts a unique approach, focusing on the heart wrenching romance of two lower class Mexicans struggling to be together in such troubled times.
