Short Tagline:
In Arturo Ripstein’s newest masterpiece, prostitutes Adela and Dora are burdened with bad marriages and financial problems. To make ends meet, they drug and rob dwarf twins working as luchadores. This “ripped from the headlines” film is captivating and enthralling and proves that Ripstein is at the peak of his directing powers.

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.

Critics Quotes:
“Creepy and beguiling. Turns a lurid tabloid true-crime story into a somber, surreal, monochromatic dream… unfolds in a stylized world that recalls old movies and pulp novels… Ripstein’s hallucinatory, deliberate style is engrossing…full of strange, vivid images and scenes.” – A.O. Scott, The New York Times

“A visionary triumph.” - Glenn Kenny,
