Some movies should never be remade!
25 September 2011 | by (Houston, USA) – See all my reviews

Or maybe it is not a remake. Who knows what Eliseo and José Luis were thinking when they made it? This hollow movie took only the title and three characters and changed the whole story, adding, of course, new characters. With new story and new people in it why not call it SALON GUAYAQUIL, or SALON CALCUTTA...?

María Rojo is Mercedes, and she looks like she cleans after the prostitutes, not like one of them. There's no sister here, now she has a daughter, Laurita (Tiaré Scanda), she also has a friend LA JAIBITA (Edith González) and a love rival called LA ALMENDRITA (Blanca Guerra)... God! Who came up with those names? Cri-Crí?

Alberto Estrella es Paco, and he had to be naked (like he does in ALL HIS MOVIES). He goes to bed with Mercedes, ALMENDRITA, then with JAIBITA (totally gratuitous nude scenes here).

Policeman Lupe Salazar is Manuel Ojeda and the Inspector (new character) is Demián Bichir. AAHHHH! Now I get it! This is the sequel... starts where the original left off. This is not a spoiler because by this time EVERYONE WHO IS WATCHING THIS MOVIE SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE ORIGINAL, otherwise, there's no point. Right? Why step into the unknown blindfolded? We need the reference! OK. So Mercedes and Paco are dead and now we have to find the reason and who did it. Maybe they kill one another? Maybe ALMENDRITA kill them? She had motives.

The more I saw this movie the more I disliked it, regardless the ''homage'' to Indio Fernández, who as a character appears briefly as a judge in the danzón contest, and Mr Aaron Copland (Steven Brown), who created the musical composition with the same name, in which the first movie is based, SALON Mexico.

If you can skip this one, do it, is not worth your time...
