Critic Reviews for The Other Conquest
In his bravura feature debut, [Salvador] Carrasco has created nothing less than a dazzling vision of the birth of a uniquely Mexican religion born of the searing fusion of Catholic and Aztec deities.
An arresting, balletic performance by Damian Delgado powers this vividly imagined, elegantly paced mystery play beyond period exoticism to a bona fide illumination of social, and sacred, history.
[Director] Carrasco uses shadows and mirrors to create effects he has no actual budget for. The lack of money shows on-screen but is cleverly hidden by the director's genius for making us care about his story so much that we forgive all else.
Audience Reviews for The Other Conquest
Foreign, Spanish. It was a good movie, but could have been so much better. Film quality wasn't the best in spots and the storyline, went on a religious trek, instead of staying on the conquest and sacking of the temples. It's about the son of Montezuma and his religious conversion after the sacking of his civilization. It was good, but could have been better. I am on the fence for this recommendation; if you want to see it, see it, if you don't, don't.
