| María Félix and Piporro star in this vibrant, vivid comic drama set during the Mexican Revolution!
"La Valentina," a Gregorio Walerstein production, unites two popular figures of Mexican cinema: María Félix and Piporro. The film was, in all aspects, a very costly production. It was shot in color (using the Eastmancolor process, popular in Mexico), and that alone set it aside from other big productions of the time such as "Los cuatro juanes" or "Tiempo de morir." The lush interior sets created to represent a wealthy hacienda are also one of the film's major assets. Costumes are also very accurate, with Félix properly dressed as an early 20th-century Mexican woman from the rural upper class. Cinematography is very vivid; especially in the closeups.

This film is a timeless classic of Mexican cinema. It brings together two strong performers into one motion picture and the result is a one-of-a-time cinematic experience. It is a perfect, empowering mesh of comedy, drama, romance, adventure, and war.
