Salón México


Time Out says

Inspired (like Aaron Copland's suite of the same name) by the eponymous Mexico City dance club, this engagingly exotic melodrama focuses on the trials and tribulations of a reluctant cabaretera (López), struggling to pay her sister's boarding school fees and determined to conceal her profession and her pimp lover. Tragedy will out, and not without a heap of escapist moralising (catch the sister's air force hero fiancé!); despite the hackneyed plotting, however, Gabriel Figueroa's noir photography and the splendidly glamorous seediness of the nightclub scenes make for passable entertainment.
