mexican noir melo

Film noir doesn't exist only in Usa, there are fascinating examples in all countries, in fact there were films noirs in Argentina before Usa. This "Crepusculo" is a desperate love story with a stunning photography (ciaro oscuro, inventive depth in field). The main character falls into madness with this impossible love, and the other characters around him are also psychologicaly hurt. It can be seen on youtube in a nice print in spanish with spanish or english subtitles.
