‘Carmesi’ Mexico’s Oscar entry

MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s Academy of Film Arts and Sciences has chosen Arturo Ripstein’s “Profundo Carmesi” (“Deep Crimson”) as its entry for an Oscar in the best foreign-language film category.

“Profundo Carmesi” transposes to 1940s Mexico the basic story of the U.S. 1970s cult hit “The Honeymoon Killers.” Ripstein collaborator Paz Alicia Garcia Diego wrote the Mexican script, based on a true tale of two lovers who team up to blackmail and murder widows and other lovelorn women. Regina Orozco and Daniel Jimenez star.

Ripstein began lensing a new film this called, “El Evangelio de las Maravillas” (“The Gospel of the Wonders”).
