Description
 
A cowardly murder, a dark mystery, and an illicit romance combine in a dark and atmospheric melodrama that's also an all-time classic of Mexican cinema. After the death of her father and betrayal by her fiancee, a woman becomes a prostitute, living above a cabaret and working "to please the men who come from the sea." Her romance with a lonely sailor begins to blossom, but the revelation of a shocking secret shatters their only chance at happiness. Inspired by stories by Guy de Maupassant and Leo Tolstoy. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Arcady Boytler---Mexico---1933---76 mins.
