El Callejon de los Milagros

The Mexican film which won more awards than any other was actually transplanted from Cairo to Mexico City. El Callejon de los Milagros, also released as Midaq Alley and Miracle Alley, involves a tangled web of love (is there any other kind?) among a cantina owner, a Tarot reader, the ugly spinster, a prostitute, and an emigrant to the U.S., where no one wins.
