Red Bells (also known as Mexico in Flames, Insurgent Mexico and Red Bells Part I – Mexico on Fire) is a 1982 adventure-drama film directed by Sergei Bondarchuk. It was coproduced by Soviet Union (where it was released as Krasnye kolokola, film pervyy – Meksika v ogne), Italy (where is known as Messico in fiamme) and Mexico (where its title is Campanas rojas). It is the first of a two-part film centered on the life and career of John Reed, the revolutionary communist journalist that had already inspired Warren Beatty's Reds. This chapter focuses on Reed's reportage about 1915 Mexican revolution. It was followed by Red Bells II.
