Bitter Sweet like dark chocolate
This movie is really beautiful and must be seen more than once . It's full of magic and hope when very dramatic at the same time. The action takes place during the Mexican Revolution and we follow an adolescent couple (Diego Luna) and Ana Claudia Talençon(El crimen del padre Amaro)in a traveling circus through the country. Ana plays a clandestine newspaper's manager's daughter who fights against the dictatorship,and after her father is murdered she joins the circus under cover with a mission: providing Madero with the necessary money to continue the fight. She meets Victor (Diego Luna)a traveling circus ill manager's son. Both they are determined to save their romance and assist the revolutionaries. In the same time, we can see the beginning of the motion picture in the country and the earliest movie camera created by the "Lumière" brothers which Victor (Diego Luna)finds so fascinating. This film must be seen by any Diego Luna's fan. He's so natural in his acting and so "cute"in these young years... a few years before "Y Tu Mama tambien"!
