Although I've given 4 stars as a mark of respect for a well made and thoughtful film, I can hardly say I "liked" it. The truth is, it is very hard to watch because the subject matter is so distressing - all the more so because it is historically very accurate - unfortunately. (I won't give away spoilers, but one conversation in a railway carriage takes place as the train trundles past row on row of captured rebels strung up from every telegraph pole alongside the rail line - this macabre detail seems a bit over the top but apparently it is 100% historically accurate).

This is not Roman Catholic propaganda - the Catholic rebels are shown to be guilty of atrocities as well as the government soldiers - but it is an action-packed, riveting account of a shocking period of state-sponsored persecution. And as for the poor boy who carries the flag...well, see the film, and weep, for his story is also totally true, and the actor who plays him is the exact same age as the counter-revolutionary hero was in real life.

Knowing nothing of this piece oh history , I was transfixed watching this film. Not always an easy watch, the cruelty of the government troops was awful and the Catholic 'rebles' were not completely blameless. The acting overall was excellent,the young actor playing ' Jose' this impressionable flag bearer heart rending. I know I shall be trying to find out more about the Christiati and their fight for religious freedom.

Arrived well packaged. Very pleased with the movie and very moved. The acting was so professional and realistic. I had already studied the history of the Cristiada which is why I ordered the DVD. I was not disappointed. I watched it twice in succession

A monument. THE film about these tragic events in Mexico in the late 1920's.
