    Great movie and it is greatly underestimated! Director Carlos Enrique Taboada does a superb job with the cinematography, screenplay, editing and VERY beautiful scenes. The two young actresses are adorable. Ana Patricia Rojo and Elsa Maria Gutierrez do a great job acting! I purchased my new and sealed DVD on Ebay – release date 1984. Pricey but worth it! I paid $80. It has English subtitles for non-Spanish speaking people. They are out of production – I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY. It won 5 academy awards. I highly recommend it and give it 5 stars ***** out of 5 ***** !!!!!
