Excellent film!
2 September 2006 | by facosta-5See all my reviews

This film is for the most part an accurate screen representation of life as it was in the Provincia Cisplatina during the Spanish rule.

Nothing to be proud of.

But it is NOT a sensationalist war epic or a soap opera with a fictitious plot designed to entertain viewers. It really is a sad movie.

People from other cultures will not understand it, only those of us who have had the honor and privilege of riding a Pampa horse among the Teros will.

It was intended to be a movie about OUR history and that's EXACTLY what it is.
