From Mexican director Alberto Gout comes this classic 1949 cabaretera, a style of film native to Latin American that mixes elements of many genres. The picture stars Ninon Sevilla as a beautiful young woman who unwittingly falls into a lurid life of prostitution and nightclub dancing. Before long though, she decides enough is enough and attempts to claw her way out of the seedy underbelly.Aventurera was released in the United States as The Adventuress. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

La Mujer del Puerto
A prostitute working in a seaside port makes a devastating discovery about one of her clients in this classic Mexican melodrama from director Arcady Boytler. Following the death of her father and the shattering revelation that her boyfriend has been unfaithful, Rosario (Andrea Palma) resigns herself to a bleak fate of selling her love to sailors returning from the sea. When Rosario is rescued from the clutches of a drunken sailor by the kindly Alberto (Domingo Soler) she takes the man to her room and makes love to him. As the two lost souls begin to bare themselves to one another, they soon learn that their pasts are more connected than they initially suspected. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
