We could all use an Ultima in our life — an older mentor to teach the old ways, heal terrible wounds and exact sorceress revenge on any witches in the neighborhood.

Three Stars for Effort but the story gets Five Stars

As some of the critics would say that the director fails to get the translation across but what do you expect when one has never experienced the culture it’s trying to get across. Isn't it like an orange trying to tell the story of an apple?! Why would I want to tell an African folk story or a German story when I have had no experience in that culture much less experienced it, no idea what that would be like. Bringing it back to the story, the actors did well, no actually excellent, all of them. Of course Rudolfo Anaya's novel is perfect with mystery, suspense and drama. I think Carl Franklin did try with Bless Me Ultima in getting as much as possible of the novel from HIS point of view on to film but it did miss some marks. Of course having read the book and seeing the film, I was glad Hollywood is FINALLY paying attention to our stories. Bless Me Ultima is worth the experience as well as getting to know some ‘curanderismo’!
