In rural Mexico, during the peasant revolts of the 1970s, Plutarco, his son Genaro and grandson Lucio lead double lives. On the one hand, they are simple country musicians, and on the other they actively support the peasant guerrilla movement against the oppressor government. When the army occupies the village, the rebels are forced to flee and leave their ammunition behind. Making the most of the fact that he looks like an inoffensive violinist, Plutarco has a plan: to recover the munitions hidden in his cornfield. His music enraptures the captain, but he still has to get his hands on the ammunition.

Excellent film, moving story. Fine cinematography, shot in B&W.

This movie is very slow at times and without a proper intro you have no idea what you are watching and are left to fill in the blanks. I would rather have seen this movie in colour to show off the beautiful country side. The ending is probably the best part of the movie but the movie itself isn’t worth watching to get to it.
