The three countries each sent forces to Veracuz, Mexico to settle the debt. At the convention of La Soledad, they were in agreement to handle affairs peacefully. This became to be known as the Battle of Puebla on May 5, The French forces were removed from Mexico six years later, in part thanks to support from the U.
The Battle of Puebla was an unlikely victory for Zaragoza and his men. Because of this, the state of Puebla continues to celebrate on May 5th cinco de mayo as remembrance and to honor the soldiers and countrymen who fought and won this battle.
Immediately, you learn the fragile state Mexico finds itself. It follows both the French army and the Mexican army with enough back story to understand where they will meet and the significance of that battle.
This war movie is rated R which is unfortunate because this would make a great history film for students. The subplot of Juan, a young Mexican soldier, kept me interested throughout the movie.
He starts out as an eager soldier but quickly tires of the defeat that is anticipated for his troop by the French army. Out of fear and frustration, he chooses to leave the army with his love interest by his side. After the French army kills his long-time friend who came to retrieve Juan, he decides to return to his troop and fight in battle at Puebla.
Juan represents the Mexicanos who loved their country but were already filled with defeat. Just before the battle, General Zaragoza addresses the Mexican army with a powerful monologue that addresses who and what Juan represents and gives the exact reasons why they must fight to the death for Mexico.
It is the pivotal point in which the meek Mexican army turns in to an exterminating force. Watch the clip below This movie is in Spanish.
I watched it with English subtitles. Even without the subtitles, the story line would be easy to follow because the acting and costume design makes it clear as to which army represents which country, who the leaders are and who the villains are.
General Zaragoza is the clear hero of the movie. He is stern, decisive and brave. The French General Lorencez is the villain as his character is calculating, malicious and arrogant.
Both characters are well written and played. I obviously knew what the ending of the movie was going to be but the battle scenes had me captivated. Again, I recommend it as a history lesson but not a boring one at all.
Like you, I have been there. And I have been afraid to die at the hands of the invader. Today, we have to change that goddamned defeatism that chases and humiliates us as a nation. This day you will face an army that regards itself as unbeatable.
They do because they have never faced brave Mexicans … warlike Mexicans!The Audubon Society (La Sociedad Conservacionista Audubon de Venezuela), maintains an environmental reference library, holds meetings and has various excursions.
