LA CALLE DE LA AMARGURA
Mexico | 2015 | Arturo Ripstein
Mexico/Spain, 2015, Arturo Ripstein
A tragic confrontation between two mask-wearing, midget Mexican wrestlers and two aging Mexico City prostitutes is delineated in the new film by master filmmaker Arturo Ripstein (Deep Crimson). Inspired by a 2009 case, this gritty, lurid, but compassionate drama (shot in gorgeous b&w) proves worthy of Ripstein’s mentor, the great Spanish surrealist Luis Buñuel. It’s also a bit Felliniesque. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 99 min.
