Alfonso Cuarón’s award-winning movie takes place in a gritty, colourful barrio that has retained its stylish eclecticism


Mexico City’s Roma for me has long been a place of secrets and spells, where the boundary between real and imaginary dances like clothes fluttering in the breeze on the barrio’s rooftop washing-lines.


Those celestial laundries feature in Roma, Alfonso Cuarón’s cinematic memoir, a movie that transports its viewers to the then-faded district a couple of miles to the west of the ancient centre of the vast sprawl that is Mexico City.

It has already won four Baftas and received a rapturous 10 nominations for this year’s Oscars, including for best director and best film – if it wins the latter next Sunday, it will become the first foreign language film ever to do so.
