(aka 'Deep Crimson')

Directed by Arturo Ripstein
Mexico / France / Spain  1996

 

  Set in 1940s northern Mexico, this film re-tells the story of "The Lonely Hearts Killers", a famous couple of murderers who made victims of lonely and wealthy widows in the USA. Coral (Orozco) is a rotund and passionate nurse who knows handsome gigolo Nicolas Estrella (Gimenez Cacho) and falls for him immediately. Nicolas rejects her because she's not rich, but Coral is determined to get him at any cost. She abandons her children and follows the man in spite of his way of living. Together they will scheme to swindle and murder women who look for love and companions writing letters to a sentimental courier.

Comments:

Anamorphic but not progressively transferred (see 'combing' in last capture) this Home Vision Entertainment DVD has a slim black border around the frame edge limiting horizontal resolution. Aside from those flaws the image does not look fatally poor - in fact in tube viewing it is very acceptable. The film itself is quite disturbing with its true-life focus on misguided passions and the corrupting results. Ripstein uses dark humor at times and the film is quite worth a viewing if you are prepared for the plot lines. A riveting drama from a gifted Mexican director.
