Time Out says

A deliriously romantic reworking of The Taming of the Shrew, set during the Juarez Revolution. When general Armendáriz seizes the town of Cholula, he immediately falls for the beautiful but volatile Félix, daughter of a wealthy landowner; unsympathetic to the revolutionary cause, she treats his attempts at courtship with fiery contempt. Acted and directed with wit, verve and passion, the film also benefits from Gabriel Figueroa's stunning b/w photography; see it, too, for the overwhelmingly lovely scene when Armendáriz finally begins to win over the stubborn Félix with a heart-rending serenade.
