It is an Albert Camus novel adapted to social problems in Yucatan coast, Mexico. The mix of the novel with historical problems in Yucatan, like racism or exploitation, is well achieved.

The most likable thing are the characters, some of the actors work really well. Humberto Zurita's great personality contains the megalomania of his character and hold it on the line before becoming laughable. He is surrounded by a crew of other important actors, like Jose Carlos Ruiz, Manuel Ojeda, or Angelica Aragon.

Power, money, sex and violence are the main passions that make arise the real nature of persons. The permanent heat that keeps everyone sweating is like a symbol of these passions.

"La furia de un dios" is a good and watchable movie.
