The remarkable debut film from director Robert Rodriguez.
|A young mariachi singer who must trade his guitar for a gun as bloodthirsty hitmen close in for the kill.|

"A movie miracle... US Magazine
Editor's NoteWhile earning room and board for a song, a down-on-his-luck musician gets into deep hot water when he's mistaken for a guitar case-toting hitman in a small Mexican town. EL MARIACHI was produced by do-it-yourself Austin, Texas auteur Robert Rodriguez (FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, SPY KIDS) on a shoe-string budget for the Mexican video market but earned a major studio release. Winner of the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
