El Gallo de oro = The golden cockerel by Roberto Gavaldon( Visual )

Based on Juan Rulfo's magical realist story of the same name, El gallo de oro recounts the rise and fall of Dionisio Pinzón, a poor town crier who calls the local cock fights and dreams of a grander destiny. Opportunity comes in the form of an injured bird that Dionisio nurses back to health in order to pit it himself in the ring. When the cock starts earning money for Dionisio, it attracts the attention of Don Lorenzo, a powerful landowner, and the two men form a profitable partnership. As success breeds obsession, Lorenzo's mistress Bernarda, a singer known as "la caponera" or "the coop," begins to resent taking a backseat to Lorenzo's business plans and seduces Dionisio out of spite. Passions flare and destinies unravel as Gavaldón employs the world of cock fighting as a metaphor for social organization in Mexican society, where assertions of authority and virility mask a world that actually operates by chance.--UCLA Film Archive
