Description
Mexico’s unparalleled auteur, Arturo Ripstein, returns with his latest masterpiece “ripped from the headlines” about two elderly prostitutes dealing with external and internal crises: Jeza is having a hard time relating to her teenage daughter and coping with her cross-dressing husband; Adela suffers from loneliness. An encounter with twin mini-luchadores results in the two men’s deaths, forcing Jeza and Adela to come up with a solution for their newfound circumstances. Unflinching, darkly humorous, and filmed in beautiful black and white, La calle de la amargura is a cinematic experience unlike any other.
