The Best Movie about Mexican Revolution
LA GENERALA it is a movie not filled with ideals about Mexican Revolution, so differ with rest of movies about the same topic including Mexican and American movies, which have the portrayal that Mexican revolutionaries are good guys that fight by an ideal and Federal Army are the tough guys that support a dictactorship that oppressed the poor people. LA GENERALA performed by the beauty Mexican Actress MARIA FELIX, is a rich woman that get involved in the Mexican Revolution by a feeling of revenge by a massacre that committed the Federal Army against her poor neighbors. So she financed a group of thieves that declared themselves revolutionaries, but they really ignore for what they are fighting, so when they arrived through the haciendas and villages, they steal, rape and murder just for a revenge and not for an ideal,and LA GENERALA feed that feeling among her soldiers with the hate that she lives inside her heart, and she demonstrated it when she tricked to ERIC DEL CASTILLO, a Mexican Federal Officer who was the main responsable of the massacre mentioned before, when she invited him to have sex with her, and she tied him to a bed, and cut the genitals of him, as symbol of vengeance. LA GENERALA was the last movie of MARIA FELIX in the Mexican movie history.
