Subida Al Cielo (Ascent To Heaven)


Ascent to Heaven

The only agricultural

exploitation of this town,

which we will call San Jeronimito,

located on the coast

of the state of Guerrero,

are coconut trees.

Oil is extracted from

the white coconut pith,

which is then used by

several industries.

The occupants of these

humble dwellings

are almost all wealthy

owners of several

hundred palm trees.

The people of the coast maintain,

with their exaggerated charm,

that a coconut tree yields

as much as a milk cow.

There is no church in the village.

Thus, the inhabitants

preserve their tradition

of celebrating weddings

with a trip

to a heavenly island

situated one mile off the coast.

Spending the night

on this deserted island...

...consecrates the newlywed's union...

...who must then be forgiven

by the bride's mother...

...before embarking on the trip.

Let's see the daily

arrival of the vehicle...

... that brings news from the world...

... to this isolated corner.

Careful, don't touch that garment.

It has to be white.

Take care of it, Mrs. Linda.

Don't worry, Silvestre.

I'll take it.

Look, such lovely

organdie endives.

It looks just like the dress...

...worn by Gen. Mendez's daughter.

Yes, but you'd rather your

daughter had worn a...

...rough cotton dress instead...

...of eloping.

Go ahead, Mrs. Linda.

Albina must be dressed by now.

If you're in such a hurry, go ahead.

I'll pick up the train.

- Hurrah for the newlyweds.

- Hurrah.


- Hurrah for the newlyweds.

- Hurrah.

Hurrah for the newlyweds.

- Hurrah for the newlyweds.

- Hurrah.

Hurrah for the newlyweds.


I have a mind to keep

you here all day.

If you think we're happy,

you're mistaken.

I doubt you can support yourself,

let alone a wife.

You're both so young.

Come on, Mrs. Clara,

forgive them.

- Yes, yes.

- Forgive them.

Forgive them.

The food's getting cold,

we're hungry.

Let them get up, woman.

Oliverio's mother is ill.

I could keep them here

until they grow roots.


You should thank God.

You can get up now.

Mother, I'm so happy.

I know Albina is your whole life.

I'll try to be

a worthy son to you.

I know you'll be happy,

you have our blessings.

Go on, go. Go let the people in.

Come in, she forgave me.

Hurrah for the newlyweds!

Hurrah for the newlyweds.

Are you happy?

I am, Oliverio. I wouldn't

trade places with anybody.

But a wedding in Mexico City

would have been nice.

And spending our honeymoon

at your mother's house... Portales.

Will it ever be ours?

- Who knows.

- To have such a large house.

And spend our wedding night

on a desert island.

That's the custom.

- I'm anxious to go.

- What about me?

With you, the island

is like a palace.

Get ready for the worst.

It's Felipe, my brother.

Mother got worse.

I said you shouldn't

have gotten married today.

It was mother,

she asked me to.

Thanks to that you

may not see her alive.

Tie the boat and come.

If something terrible happens...

...we'll have to decide

about the property.

Don't say that now.

It's got to be said sometime.

I won't give up my share.

Your soul is poisoned.

Making plans...

...while mother is ill.

Don't insult me.

I'm the eldest, I'll decide.

She's still here to decide.

What if she gives

it all to the boy?

We'll do what she decides.

It's her call, isn't it?

All right, Chuchito, all right.

Go play, go on. Go play.

Are you feeling better, mother?

I won't make it this time.

You have many years ahead.

But if something should happen...

...God forbid, God forbid... me to settle the property.

Did you think I'd fall that easy?
