Storyline

On a small Mexican island dwells a group of Indians who live in the traditional manner and who disdain outsiders. The beautiful Maclovia and the poverty-stricken Jose Maria are in love, but her father refuses to allow their marriage, or even any communication between them, due to Jose Maria's lack of means. The young man strives to educate himself and earn enough to purchase his own fishing boat in order to win her father's favor. At the same time, a batallion of soldiers is posted there, and the brutal sergeant develops eyes for Maclovia. The conflicts come to a head on the Night of the Dead. Written by GoblinHairedGuy

A Great Movie for a Great Place
2 November 2006 | by carlos_bossSee all my reviews

Emilio Fernández was one of the best directors of Mexican classical cinema, Maclovia is a masterpiece of art work; but, i wonder?... and the cinematography?...Patzcuaro's Lake is one of the most beautiful places in México...I'm Michoacano, so was a great honor for us: Mr. Fernández was making the film, taking to the world the magnificent charming of this piece of land and water that is Patzcuaro Lake and his islands: Yunuen, Janitzio, La Pacanda y Uranden, and the famous fishermen with his "canoas" and the characteristic butterfly web. Maclovia take on a strong drama, the passion, the love and the jealousy of a poor men, for his pretty and young woman.
