Movie Info

Mexico's contribution to the 1957 Berlin Film Festival was the Color-Cinemascope star vehicle Tizos. The ever-popular Maria Felix stars as a white woman who enters into a romance with a Mexican Indian, played by singing star Pedro Infante (who died shortly after the film's completion). The racial barriers between the lovers prove to be insurmountable, resulting in tragedy. Director Ismael Rodriguez spends a great deal of time establishing the folklore and traditions of Infante's people, much to the fascination of his audience. Likewise enraptured by Tizoc were the participants at the Berlin Festival, where the film scored a significant success.

Audience Reviews for Tizoc

  • Sep 16, 2011
    Gorgeous. The idealistic formula of Ismael for tragedies and brief interruptions of the dramatic pace with tender musical numbers as eternal as they are classic in the national folklore works on superior levels than the main idea of the movie. Allegorical and metaphysical elements are displayed as Mother Nature sings its song of love among the two protagonists; Cinemascope in its full glory enlightens the romantic aura surpassing racial barriers, discrimination and even death itself. One of the most important Mexican classics with even memorable displays of poetry! 99/100
