After the last gasp, the question remains: Why have we subjected ourselves to this film? I can't answer that.

Audience Reviews for Profundo carmesí (Deep Crimson)

It's always interesting to see different versions of the same story to see what was changed, what remained, and if done well, they provide interesting insights into both films. Set in 1940s northern Mexico, this film re-tells the story of The Lonely Hearts Killers, a famous couple of murderers who made victims of lonely and wealthy widows in the USA.

Regina Orozco delivers a loathsome, densely disturbing performance and Cacho is believable as a grifter with certain "issues". Both come together to create a most pathetic couple touring the Mexican countryside. The cinematography and musical score add just the right touch.

an obese nurse meets a balding lothario and they form an obsessive relationship based on their mutual insecurities. a beautifully done mexican adaptation of the lonely hearts murder case of the 1940's with some truly haunting scenes and a lovely score

goes from black humor to total disgust with the couple; and the camera moves make the sets look artificial
