Night Lights

Luces de la noche

Eduardo (Hector Bonilla), an aged judge, is being retired. With much free time on his hands, he begins to sort through old papers and discovers a photograph of Tina (Helena Rojo), a singer whom he loved in his youth. The judge sets out to find Tina and discovers she has married a gangster. Director Sergio Muñoz Guemes’ melancholic film provides a sympathetic portrait of a man who discovers too late that dedication to his work has been at the expense of life’s emotional and romantic possibilities. It’s a universal story, but the film also contains some sharp observations on contemporary Mexican society.
