racechanging: Deliciosa Sinvergüenza

Deliciosa Sinvergüenza

A scene-by-scene remake of the Mexican caper movie La hermana Trinquete about a professional thief who is an expert in changing her appearance to outwit the police.

When she is nearly caught by the police the thief (Lucero) hides out in a luxury hotel in Acapulco, adopting a number of disguises – including that of a black chambermaid – to rob fellow guests. When the police inspector in charge of the investigation is about to catch her she takes refuge in a convent, where the Mother Superior discovers that her skills are very useful.

The inspector is hot on her trail but she escapes again and is soon back to her tricks.
