LA PERLA: The Pearl is the tragic fable of a simple Mexican fisherman who finds a valuable pearl and begins fantasizing about untold wealth and luxury for himself and family. His more sensible wife is uncertain as to whether the pearl is an omen of good luck, but soon she, too, falls under its spell. The couple’s naivete leads to their being exploited and brutalized by sharpsters and thieves. Before the fisherman angrily hurls the pearl back into the sea, the gem brings about nothing but death and despair.

Two classics of Mexican Cinema This DVD brings us two classics of Mexican cinema, DISTINTO AMANECER (Julio Bracho, 1943) and LA PERLA (Emilio Fernández, 1946). Considering the age of these films, both copies are in very good condition, although the sound is not always perfect. The main actors (Pedro Armendáriz & Andrea Palma; Pedro Armendáriz & María Elena Marqués) are all superb. The cinematography, by Gabriel Figueroa in both instances, is nothing short of stunning. A treat for those who value a great period in Mexican cinema.

Distinto Amanecer Distinto Amanecer is one of those movies you get drawn into. Atmospheric as hell and excellent performances from Armendariz & Palma. It is unfortunate the sound track goes “off track” on a couple of scenes and kind of makes one lose the movie magic for a few minutes. Other than that, it’s a great film.

My mistake I ordered this DVD under the impression that the copy of LA PERLA on the disk had English subtitles. I am not attempting to return it; my son has a friend that he can give it to.However, I would like to know if a subtitled version of this film does exist. Can you give me any information on that? And if there is such a version, can you name a source for me? Thank you for your attention to this request.
