Great unknown Mexican movie from the Seventies
18 November 2006 | by joncamaneySee all my reviews

Great Mexican movie from the Seventies. Carlos Enrique Taboada is to this day an underrated writer/director. He made some of the most interesting films of the Sixties and the Seventies. Some of them are failures, and some of them are great.

He is best known for his horror movies including the classic "Hasta el Viento Tiene Miedo", and the not so good "Mas Negro Que la Noche" and "El Libro De Piedra".

"Rapina" is a history about the tragic consequences of greed, after a plane crashes nearby a small Mexican town.

Great performances by Ignacio Lopez Tarso, German Robles, Norma Lazareno and Rosenda Monteros. The movie is available in DVD in Mexico.
