Basada en un popular cuento de los hermanos Grimm, Macario es sin dudas una de las mejores películas mexicanas que he visto, y un gran exponente del cine latinoamericano.

"La vida no fue fácil Macario, pero fue buena vivirla juntos"

The best mexican movie that I've ever seen. The argument is so creative, Macario represent a good man that is tempted by the devil, the death and God.

Macario is by far one of my favorite foreign films. Has a great story and explains how well a person can be with a gift to heal the people.

Despite some hilariously hokey acting, this suspenseful tragedy manages to make you care for the characters at its center.

An excellent mexican movie, it has good screenplay and good performances, it shows how to appreciate the life and the madness.

A dark and intense fantasy about a man who has nothing of value but what he has, he treasures. This has to be one of the best films to come out from mexico. It's funny but scary at the same time, a true master worck.

Wonderful movie. Ignacio Lopez Tarso is a great actor and he proved it here. Beautiful cinematography by Gabriel Figueroa and master direction by Gavaldon. It was Mexico's first film that was nominated for an Oscar to Best Foreign Film. Well deserved honor.

A wonderful tale, and a hidden mexican gem. The story is simple, yet full of morality, and it's adapted to the grim times of Mexico under que Inquisition, which gives it something extra.

Hace perfecto uso de los arquetipos tan pesados que escoge presentar. Incluso logra imprimir ironía y complejidad psicológica en su discurso y narrativa. La fotografía de Gabriel Figueroa es extraordinaria, así como su ataque bastante abierto a la Iglesia católica. / Makes perfect use of the heavy archetypes it chooses to present. It even manages to imbue its discourse and narrative with irony and psychological complexity. Gabriel Figueroa's photography is extraordinary, as is its rather open attack to the Catholic Church.

Interesting premise, funny performances, very eventful - though sort of tedious - and positively ambiguous.

Una de mis películas favoritas. En esta excelente adaptación al cine del cuento de B. Traven se revive la historia de Macario, el leñador mexicano que hace un pacto con la muerte, consiguiendo así un regalo inusual.El subestimado director Roberto Galvadón nos muestra de forma creativa y con un entorno cargado de símbolos la concepción de la muerte en el México clásico.Parte de la corriente nacionalista de la edad de oro, donde era visible el costumbrismo y el preciocismo, pero sin abusar de estos elementos (como lo hizo por ejemplo E. Fernández en María Candelaria) Macario es un filme de ritmo ágil y de historia envolvente.Sin embargo, la película está sustentada por 2 pilares: la soberbia actuación de Ignacio López Tarso y la mejor fotografía de México (claro, gabriel figueroa)Un clásico mexicano altamente recomendado*****
