The Realm of Fortune
(El imperio de la fortuna)

by Arturo RIPSTEIN

El imperio de la fortuna - Ripstein

Dionisio Pinzon who lives in a state of wretched poverty, rescues a badly wounded cock, left for dead after a bloody fight. Miraculously, the cock recovers and they set off together to find their fortune at cock-fights staged in country fairs. In his travels, Dionisio meets “La Caponera” (“The Ballbreaker”), a singer who has a very independant life-style. She is his “talisman”, and, gradually caging her free spirit, he becomes rich at the card- table. This is the beginning of Dionisio’s new life and revenge on poverty.
