Storyline

Set in 1940s northern Mexico, this film re-tells the story of "The Lonely Hearts Killers", a famous couple of murderers who made victims of lonely and wealthy widows in the USA. Coral (Orozco) is a rotund and passionate nurse who knows handsome gigolo Nicolas Estrella (Gimenez Cacho) and falls for him immediately. Nicolas rejects her because she's not rich, but Coral is determined to get him at any cost. She abandons her children and follows the man in spite of his way of living. Together they will scheme to swindle and murder women who look for love and companions writing letters to a sentimental courier. Written by Maximiliano Maza <mmaza@campus.mty.itesm.mx>

Video vs. film
19 September 1999 | by (Seattle Washington) – See all my reviews

It appears there are several versions of this film. The video which has just been released and which I watched last night, seems to have been edited to shorten it up. I'm sorry to see this because some of the scenes where changed dramatically by the ommissions. I recall the theater version going into more detail on each of the crimes.
