Editorial Reviews

DISTINTO AMANECER: Octavio is a union activist searching for documents that prove governmental corruption. Pursued by the law, he encounters an old university comrade, Julieta, who hides him. Her husband is another old friend, now an embittered bureaucrat. After she commits a crime to save the papers, Julieta must decide where her loyalties really lie. 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.

Customer Reviews

I totally loved this and will cont to purchase from this buyer.
Evangelina Frias
On a different note, I really enjoyed the "jarocho" music and dances in "La Perla".

Voices sometimes are muffled, making it difficult to understand the dialogue.

These two movies from the 40s are in Spanish without subtitles. But if you are fluent in Spanish, they are a real bargain. They are expertly shot, and the plots are also well done. The video on La Perla is very clear. Pedro Armendariz, who also acted in some English language films, such as From Russia With Love, is the star in both. Distinto Amanecer is about an underground union movement against evil people in power. Though it takes place in the 40s in Mexico, the themes are universal. La Perla takes place in a small fishing village, and is about how richness (the pearl) corrupts. Although the sound on the films is not that clear, both were enjoyable, and the price makes this set very attractive.

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.

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.

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.

Having seen Distinto Amanecer WITH subtitles at a local arthouse venue (The Detroit Film Theatre), I give this product four stars for its availability and quality, but subtract one from a possible five because it does not have subtitles. As an enthusiastic consumer of films noirs I find this film is very much in line with that particular type of film, and recommend it to those who share my enthusiasm. But please, someone, make this available with subtitles. Do so and I'll buy it in a heartbeat.
