Movie Info

Based on Nobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz's novel Midaq Alley, a story involving four parallel episodes with overlapping characters--none of whom ever gets what he or she wants. The main characters include: Rutilio, a gruff, macho tavern owner who develops a taste for handsome young men; Chava, Rutilio's adult son who longs for a better life in America; Alma, a strong-willed beauty who's tempted to marry a wealthy elderly shop owner; Abel, an earnest but penniless young barber who loves Alma; and Susanita, a spinsterish landlady who looks for love in all the wrong places.


Critic Reviews for Callejon De Los Milagros

All Critics (4)

The result is a startlingly funny, at times desperately despairing, symbiosis of lower-class lives trying to make the best of the few assets they have.

August 30, 2005

This film is tied together by four tired soap opera tales that are competently crafted but predictable.
