From Mexico with Love

Synopsis: Hector, a young Mexican national and border-crossing migrant farm laborer, has boxing abilities just like his late father had. He could perhaps be good if he learned to think along with his pummeling, then he could do better for his ailing mother than pull in a few side dollars from small-time, illegal gambling fights. Getting on the bad side of racist Texas farmer Big Al and his cocky, pugilist son Robert, puts Hector in touch with an alcoholic trainer named Billy who, nevertheless, can teach him to be better. It all comes down to an arranged, high-stakes match between Hector and the 20-pounds more muscular Robert in which Hector's only hope is to demonstrate he can keep his head in the game.

Well, well, well.

Still the same old Hector,

fighting in the dirt.

Last time I saw you,

you were fighting

some little runt back in Asuncn.

Things don't change much,

do they?

Yeah, it's funny.

Last time I saw you,

you were a stuck-up little brat.

Maybe things don't change at all.

I remember this.

They were your dad's, right?

Don't touch those, okay?

Why did you come here?

Why does anyone come here?

Who's that?


Well, he's a loud nobody.

Yeah, they usually are.

Joven, medicine.

This is it?

What? They're cheap, okay?

It doesn't always mean

they got them in stock.

Plus, you owe me from last week.

Yeah, I was going to pay

you back with what I won.

And if you lost?

You didn't think of that? No.

You can take it out

of my cut of the side bets.

Which would leave you

just with the bruises, right?

You're not using your head.

Come on,

we've got to go now.

Welcome home.

Okay, Maria.

Hector, show her to the room.

Everybody else come with me.


You'll share

your beautiful suite with Lupe.

She mostly works up at the house,

so you'll have

the whole penthouse here to yourself.

This is the kitchen,

toilet's down the hall,

shower's around the corner.

We share them,

so there's no time for pampering.

There's a very modern pay phone

here right outside your door

in case you get homesick,

but it cuts people off,

so make the tears quick, all right?

What is your problem?

I ain't got a problem.



Dnde fuiste?

I don't like this medicine.

Ma, it will help you breathe.

This helps me to cough.

Yes, that's because

you're not using it right.


Mama, listen,

don't go out to the fields

tomorrow, all right?


No work, no pay.

I will take care of it.


No, hijo, ya no.
