SYNOPSIS

Fresh from serving eighteen years in jail for shooting a man in self-defense, Juan Sayago (Jorge Martinez de Hoyos, The Magnificent Seven) comes back to his hometown to start life anew and reunite with old flame Mariana (Marga López, Buñuel's Nazarin). However, the two sons of the man he killed, consumed by an overwhelming thirst for revenge, have been anxiously awaiting his return in TIME TO DIE, a stunning directorial debut from then 21-year-old Mexican auteur Arturo Ripstein.

From an original story by Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez ("One Hundred Years of Solitude"), and featuring dialogue by iconic Mexican novelist/essayist Carlos Fuentes ("The Death of Artemio Cruz," "The Old Gringo"), the stark and gritty 1966 revenge western provides insight into the director's genius, who would go on to create Deep Crimson and Hell Without Limits. Robert Abele of the Los Angeles Times commented that TIME TO DIE was "shot in a crisp black-and-white that treasures bleak long shots as much as thrillingly nervous camera movement...[and] turns the showdown narrative of so many oaters into an actively intelligent, darkly funny and no less suspenseful rumination on the pull of the horizon versus the ill wind at the back."
