Aventurera (The Adventuress)

Edition 1993
111' - 1950 - Drama, Music/Musical - Dialogue: Spanish
Director: Alberto Gout Composer: Antonio Diaz Conde With: Ninon Sevilla, Tito Junco, Andrea Palma, Ruben Rojo, Miguel Inclan, Jorge Mondragon
If the 'comedia ranchera' stood for traditional values, the 'cabareteras' dramatized the breakdown of those values. Aventurera has been lauded as the epitome of the 'cabaretera', transcending its melodramatic structures. The film treated middle­ class morality as a hypocritical sham and represented Mexican society as being thoroughly corrupt. ( ... ) Clearly Aventurera went far beyond the usual parameters of the 'cabaretera' melodrama, allowing its 'heroïne' to vent her most ruthless instincts freel3 without eventual punishment.
