Upon its rediscovery in 1996, this 1950 cabaretera—an noir-ish musical—was immediately recognized as a masterpiece of Mexican cinema. Conceived as popular entertainment, the film has become known for its celebration of a powerful Mexican woman, played by legendary Ninon Sevilla, who, finding herself trapped into a criminal life, fights her way back to safety. With its perfectly staged, inventive musical numbers, tense drama and rich social satire, it remains moving nearly 70 years after its completion. (Mexico, 1950, 101m)
