A poor man comes face to face with Death himself in this celebrated movie.
Dir Roberto Gavaldón
With Ignacio López Tarso, Pina Pellicer, Enrique Lucero
Roberto Gavaldón’s celebrated, dreamlike parable follows poor woodcutter Macario (López Tarso) on the Day of the Dead as he meets three apparitions who each ask to share his precious turkey meal. After refusing all but one – a stranger who turns out to be none other than Death himself – Macario is rewarded with a gourd of water that will heal any illness; but such power comes at a price.
