One of the least-known films of Mexican director Emilio Fernandez, Quartier Interdit was given a limited U.S. release as Hell's Kitchen. As in most of Fernandez's efforts, the characters are entrapped in the tentacles of Cruel Fate. The central character is an infant, born out of wedlock to the victimized lover of the brutish Don Rodolfo (Tito Junco). The abandoned baby is unofficially adopted by cabaret dancer Isaura (Ninon Sevilla), who resorts to prostitution to buy food for the child. Ultimately, Isaura crosses the path of the no-good Don Rodolfo, with disastrous results for them both. Quartier Interdit represents another successful collaboration between Emilio Fernandez and cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa.
