El misterio de la perla negra

Genre: Action, Drama
90 min

This is a story told from

mouth to mouth in the coast.

Nobody remembers when

or where it happened.

What do you think,


Won't you go?

We can't cast the canoes to

the sea now.

But it's been 7 days since we

don't fish.

Then why don't you

eat bunches of beans?

You can do that,

but what about us?

- How's the sea?

- It's still choppy.

Let's see if...

...it's quieter later.

- I hope so.

When would it possible

to dive?

Don't worry.

I'll go diving tomorrow.

We'll get lots of oysters.

You'll see it.

We'll get many of them.

Who knows?

Maybe we'll get a pearl.

- A good one.

- A pearl this big...



...who knows?

I have a hunch...

- Aren't there more beans?

- Those are the last ones.

My child!

- We need the doctor.

- He must come.

The doctor never comes.

I needed him once;

don't you think he'll come.

Then we'll go to his place.

Go to see who's out there.

Yes, sir.

Come on, go!


- The door.

- Yes, sir. I always forget it.

My pearls.

My beautiful pearls.

- What?

- A lady looks for you.

I don't receive

anyone in the morning.

Ask her to come later.

But she doesn't understand

any explanation.

That's true doctor.

I don't understand.

A pretty woman...

...has the boldness of

interrupting a man's breakfast.


...let' s see.

Tongue out.

No, doctor.

You surely know a man of my

position can't take charge...

...of a case like yours.

Besides, it's dangerous.

Not only because of law

and religion...

...but because of my

professional ethics.

I' m a doctor.


...doing that is expensive.

Are you rich?

Go to the hospital tonight

at g.

The doctor?

He's not here.

He was stung by a scorpion.

He feels bad.

He may die.

The doctor's not here!

Please, don't be mean.

- What's wrong?

- A scorpion, miss.

He may die!

Scorpions kill children!

That's true. They kill them.

You know the doctor's here!

Do you have money?

What the hell is going on?

Can't one have breakfast?

There are two natives who say

a scorpion stung their child.


They nearly brought me

an animal.

Do they think I' m a vet?

Who's my patient:

the native or the scorpion?

Do they think that I' m going

to waste my time with them?

They never pay!

Becoming a doctor

is not cheap.

They have this.

They are poor.

They'll never...

...have one cent.

He's not here.

But my child's very ill.

When can we find the doctor?


He's fine.

Quino, come.

- Is the tide low?

- Yes. Everyone is coming.

No. We can't.

Go. I'll stay with Juanito.

- Won't you leave him?

- Not even for a minute.

Don't worry. I'll stay here.

Go, go!

Go up.

- No. I'll go down again.

- What happens?

I can't explain.

- Open it up.

- I don't dare.

Don't be afraid. Open it up.

- Did you hear about the pearl?

- They' re lucky.

I swear to God it's this big.

Doctor, the native who came

with his child this morning...

...has just found a huge pearl.

It's an extraordinary pearl.

I spoke to 5 people who had

seen it...

...and all of them say that

its shape is...

...perfect and faultness.

We have to believe it.

Show it, Quino.

I haven't seen it.

Our luck's change, hasn't it?

What's next now you' re rich?

I'll maybe buy a gun.

- I'll buy a rifle.

- He'll have a rifle.

What else? You' re rich now.

I'll buy new clothes.

And for her...

...a pair of shoes.

- She'll have shoes.

My son'll read.

He'll know...

...how to read...

He'll write...

...and will know books.

He'll know...

...how to use numbers.

This will make us free.

He'll have knowledge, and,

through him...
