Movie Info

Spending the bulk of her time working and raising her child alone, Julia's life is filled with mundane grays. The only color in her life comes from her Wednesday night trips to Mexico City where she dances the danzon with her long-time partner Carmelo. But one night, she goes to dance and Carmelo is not there. At first puzzled, and then obsessed, she embarks upon a search that not only solves the mystery of his disappearance, but also leads her down a path of personal discovery and renewal. This drama earned international acclaim and was the first Mexican film to premiere at Cannes in over a decade.

Critic Reviews for Danzon

All Critics (3)

Novaro's story feels stale. Only the innocence and vivacity of her leading actress, Maria Rojo, keeps this slow-moving, thinly plotted tale alive.
