Release Date: 12 February 1993 (Finland)
Plot Outline: Set in 1920s. A young European woman assumes a false identity to escape her loveless marriage to an older man. She gets more than she bargained for when the ship she is traveling on arrives in Argentina and she is entrapped by an unscrupulous brothel owner.
My Opinion: I adore this film, not only because of Vincent D’Onofrio’s sexy portrayal of Cholo and Matilda May’s excellent performance as his leading lady but because of the wonderful effect that the lighting has in setting the mood. Not just entertainment it’s art!
NB. Care should be taken when buying this film. My copy is VHS but there are a lot of poor black market DVDs out there so buyer beware, use a reputable dealer.
