Additional Information

Directed by Roberto Gavaldón. Alberto Robles (Arturo de Córdova) is a doctor serving an impoverished rural community. Mindful of the brilliant career he could be enjoying in Mexico City, his resulting ambivalence is complicated by his attraction to poor Soledad (Stella Inda), who has also caught the attention of an exploitative local political boss. De Córdova’s understanding of warring, internal impulses is perfectly modulated for this stirring portrayal of conscience in action.

Cast: Arturo de Córdova, Stella Inda, Pedro Armendáriz, Carlos López Moctezuma, Domingo Soler. 35mm, b/w, in Spanish with English subtitles, 108 min.
