The Mexican Suitcase

The Mexican Suitcase is a very well structured movie, taking up the background of a series of events that took place before World War II and its impact on people.

It is directed by Trisha Ziff who is one of the most fantastic detective story documentary teller of all time. The film had its world premiere at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival and since then it has been added to the shelf of one of the finest historical dramas, it has a good share of viewers, not only from the photography background but even people having an inclination towards historical events have appreciated it.

The film is an absolute portrayal of atrocities faced by the people of Spain.
