This infernal weather

is breaking our soldiers!

They throw up all the time!

We have to order the Mexican government

to allow us to take our troops

inside the country,

where the weather is less harmful.

We cannot order them, but we could ask

for their permission, as a goodwill gesture.

We French don't ask

for anyone's permission!

- Before our whole troops get sick...

- I remind you that you are not alone.

France, Spain and England are allies,

all decisions must be made in common.

- We must be careful.

- Careful? About what?

The Mexican government should not

take our request like a menace.

As if our troops were moving forward.

We have to show them our goodwill.

Let us hope for a decent answer

from our Mexican friends.


Okay, then.

But take us out of this hell, General Prim!

Give him some water!

Take him to the shade. Dismissed.

- How many do we have?

- Sixty, Captain.

So, you are coming with us, ma'am?

Of course!

My husband, God save his soul,

was a soldier,

and now it's our turn to help

our troops, isn't it?

Maybe the French will come

to harm us and then what would we do?

What are you doing with that cannon?

It's stuck, Captain.

- Don't worry, we are pulling it out, right?

- Yeah!

.Hurry up!

- Yes!

- Wait, Juan.

- What?

I'll help the lady.

- Here.

- Oh, thanks.


Let me help you.

Thank you.

You're welcome.


Come on, Juan! Hurry!

We need to get the cannon

out of the mud!


We have to help the lady, right? Wait!

If I wore a skirt, would you help me

with the cannon?

No, I... I'm sorry, Captain!

Hurry UP!

- Citlali!


- What are you doing?

- Nothing, aunt.

- Come on, hurry up!

- Yes, yes.

Minister Doblado, please understand that

we are hereto help the Mexican people.

We only want your debt
