racechanging: La hermana Trinquete

La hermana Trinquete

An enjoyable Mexican caper movie about a professional thief (Silvia Pinal) who is an expert in changing her appearance to outwit the police.

When she is nearly caught by the police she 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.

Deliciosa Sinvergüenza was a scene-by-scene remake.
