My favorite movie of all time.

This is one of my favourite movies of all times. I just love all the characters, it is wonderfully cast. The food scenes are excellent as are the music selections. It is a sad love story though. Highly, highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed.

An entertaining film which gives insight to the prejudices of the past.

A great movie, and also one of the best novels I've read. This movie's art is amazingly matched to how was México at those times and territory.

But I agree with previous comments, this is a horribly edited version, missing great parts!

Such a wonderful movie, IT'S SAD to see the library has such an edited copy, a quarter of the movie has been deleted, more than 30 minutes, some of the best moments!.
