a cinematic marvel This fabulous classic has everything ! Taking place during World War 2, it has spies, bandits, wonderful music (performed by Pedro Vargas, and more…) a lot of humor, gorgeous cinematography (though a little grainy at times, the beauty of this film makes its age insignificant), and the stunning and exquisitely graceful Raquel Rojas doing a Flamenco number that’s one of the lovliest ever captured on film.

Great Classic This film is a “Classic”, and for Pedro Almendarez fans, it is one not to miss. The film takes place during the war years (early ’40’s). It is a mystery, comedy, romance, adventure, and more.Pero mas que nada, “da mucho ser Mexicano”. No se la pierdan.

A Fun Early Emilio Fernandez Film Fernandez’s camera shows the influence of Eisenstein, and his storyline certainly follows like an early Hitchcock film. Soy Puro Mexicano, as the sort of silly title might lead on, plays like a loose Mexican version of The Lady Vanishes. It has German and Japanese spies, a train ride, a foxy dame, a hacienda holdup, Western styled shootouts, and even a prison escape. It’s never quite serious or smoothly produced, but that gives it some of its charm. I think what I like best about Soy Puro Mexicano is the opening scenes of warfare in Europe and Asia. For me that is precisely what made the Epoca Dorada so special: while Europe and Asia were descending into war and barbarism, Mexico was a relatively tranquil island in a sea of turmoil. So even though Soy Puro Mexicano is nothing to change the world or even take seriously, for me it is THE perfect place to begin an exploration of Mexico’s golden age of cinema.The DVD is barebones and has no English or Spanish subtitles…
