DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION
From the golden age of Mexican cinema comes this rarely seen masterpiece. Maria and Magdalena are twin sisters (both played by Dolores Del Rio). But where Maria is modest and shy, struggling as a manicurist, Magdalena went and married a wealthy industrialist with whom Maria was once in love. when the industrialist dies, Maria is pushed to the brink, and on Christmas day she murders her twin in cold blood. But taking on her sister's life quickly proves to be a damnable task, as she finds herself plunged into a life of greed and duplicity from which she will never emerge. This stunning noir features an incredible performance by Del Rio, and has never been screened in Minnesota before.
