Critic Reviews for Macario
Roberto Galvadon's 1959 rags-to-riches fable combines magical realism and folkloric elements of Mexico's Indianist movement with results that are alternately comic and poignant.
Gabriel Figueroa's cinematography is the best element of this Mexican folk tale, which was the country's first nominee for Foreign Language Oscar.
Audience Reviews for Macario
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.
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.
