Otilia is both blessed with a body that is the epitome of feminine perfection and cursed by an ugly mole that mars her beautiful face. The juxtaposition between fabulous beauty and disfigurement proves unsettling for the villagers and she grows up friendless, save the family's hired hand Melquíades. Though most figured she would end up as a prostitute, she is married off to Isidro, the local police chief. Cruel and petty, this ogre of a man brutalizes her and eventually infects her with venereal disease, rendering her sterile. With the help of Melquíades, Otilia takes a series of lovers to spite her husband. One day, the wounded Ruben -- a wanted outlaw -- staggers onto her doorstep and immediately she is in love. Much to Melquíades' chagrin, she harbors and tends to the criminal as her husband is out hunting for him.

It's got a few things going for it, but it failed to truly impress.The story is very straight forward & I feel it's only original quality is the fact that they decided to do a musical in this day & age.It will appeal to some audiences but nothing really grabbed me at all, can not ignore the killer soundtrack by the proclaimers though it adds a lot.

Arseniy V (br) wrote: I love this film's approach to getting its point across. Placing the viewer just outside the social dynamics we all play some part in. Close enough to recognize these dynamics, but just far enough that we are aren't fully immersed into the details (as would usually be the case). At this distance, (what I see as) the point here is quite obvious. Anyone who enjoys animal documentaries should be able to pick it out.

If anything the movie shows the lack of communication between people these days, yet fails to seem believable when 6 characters living in a city as large as Sydney are all interlocked so closely. Great performances once again by all actors, and is really the only thing that holds the movie together with the very realistic dialogue. Maybe you need to be at that middle age to really understand this movie, with a story line that probaly would have suited the stage instead.

Don't think they can run the disclaimer, no animals were hurt in this film, POOR MONKEY. Guess they are selling this now in a 3 disk set called Cannibal Lunch Box. What I learned from this movie was "Just When You Think Your in Paradise,,,Wham the Cannibals Show Up. Enjoy

Ashley H (mx) wrote: Firecreek is one of most underrated great westerns ever because it doesn't have a lot of flash. It's just gritty and tense. I think this is best small-town-sheriff-gets-pushed-too-far western. Henry Fonda proves he is better when he's bad and Jack Elam is a plus. The real surprise is Gary Lockwood in a powerhouse performance of pure evil. James Stewart of course is the sheriff. The final shootout is great, pitchfork and all. Firecreek isn't for all tastes, but I recommend it, especially for noir-type fans.
