MPAA Rating:

A period piece that blends first love, the power of the cinema and the Mexican Revolution, El Cometa is set in 1910, as Medero’s factions were organizing against the Profirio Diaz regime. Romualdo owns a traveling vaudeville show and has just lost his star attraction when his son Victor meets Guy, a French cinematographer who has worked for Lumiere. Victor is fascinated by the possibilities of the movies, and when Guy discovers Romualdo needs a new drawing card, he offers him a deal — a movie set-up at a bargain price in exchange for helping to hide Valentina, a girl whose father was arrested for working with Medero’s rebels. Valentina is also carrying a fortune in gold which she hopes to smuggle to Medero, who is hiding in Texas, but in the meantime she and Victor begin a romance and Valentina becomes the new star of the show while trying to elude the police.
