This has been one of my ten favorite films of all time. I showed a copy of it to the children of friends in Guadalajara. None of the children had ever seen or heard of it. They all loved it, and cheered with joy.<br/><br/>The children asked if they could invite all their friends in for another showing of &quot;The Brave One,&quot; so, soon, the entire room was full. Standing room only.<br/><br/>Adults and kids alike saw the faith, hope and inspiration in this outstanding movie.<br/><br/>Some teachers show the film in classes studying other cultures, and it always goes over very big, as it should.<br/><br/>No remake can ever come close to this version..

The Brave One was beautifully crafted in 1957 by blacklisted author Robert Rich and immediately established itself as a superb classic. The tale is of a small Mexican boy and his enduring love for his courageous pet bull. Set in Mexico, a boy discovers a cow has been killed after delivering and orphaning a male offspring. Naming the calf Gitano, The boy become it&#39;s friend and caretaker. Realizing the boy&#39;s loneliness, the parents encourage the bond, but fail to emphasis the eventual fate of the animal. Throughout the Calf&#39;s life the boy&#39;s love inexorably growing unaware of his parent&#39;s financial responsibility to the bull&#39;s true owner. By the time the animal has grown to market size and becomes a cash commodity, the boy&#39;s parents are torn between their son&#39;s love and their duty to the Patrone. Using subterfuge, the parents separate the two. Returning from a fool&#39;s errand, the boy discovers his best friend and lifetime companion has been sold for the purpose of bull fighting and its eventual destruction. Despite the frantic warnings of his parents that it&#39;s too late to save the animal, the small boy adroitly played by Michel Rey, sets off to save his courageous friend from certain death. The boy visits everyone from the Patrone to the Governnor of Mexico in a vain attempt to alter the fate of his pet. The film culminates with the boy&#39;s magnificent bravery before an arena filled with spectators. True love for any animal has never had a more poignant test of love and courage. For any viewer with a human heart, this tear-wrenching film will leave you joyfully weeping. ****
