Callejón de los Milagros

Posted by: | February 3, 2009 | Comments Off on Callejón de los Milagros

I don’t even know where to start with this film.  It was intense, but more difficult for me to discuss than the other ones; I guess I am still trying to wrap my head around everything.

The way in which the film jumps from person to person is interesting, but leaves certain gaps.  Earlier in the film, for example, Rutilio’s marraige is falling apart due to his affair with Jimmy, but after Jimmy’s injury, we don’t see him again and Rutilio seems to be back with his wife.  We don’t know what happened in the meantime. Also… why did Alma go back to the pimp, José Luis, after she had fought him earlier?

It also would have been interesting to see Chava and Abel’s experiences in the U.S. – if for no other reason than to further develop Abel’s struggle to provide for and marry Alma.

More thoughts to come tomorrow in my responses…
