Desperado (1995)

Ending / spoiler

(7 votes)

Bucho turns out to be the brother of El Mariachi. He and Carolina head over to Bucho's villa and give themselves up, seemingly unarmed. After a brief exchange, El Mariachi pulls out a pair of handguns that he's hidden in his sleeves and shoots a number of furious rounds directly into the camera. The scene fades out, and we're left to conclude that he was successful in his objectives.After visiting the little boy in the hosptial, El Mariachi leaves town carrying his guitar case full of guns. Carolina catches up to him in her jeep("I want you to thank me right now") and the two of them drive off together with Tito and Tarantula's "Back to the House that Love Built" playing in the background.


Continuity mistake: When El Mariachi breaks the guy's neck at the bar he stands up and his knee caps are full of white dust, then he finishes writing a note to Bucho his knee caps are clean.

More trivia for Desperado

Question: I have two questions: 1) At the beginning of the movie, when Buscemi tells the story about the mariachi in this one bar in Saragossa, Tavo (the one Mexican that is later in the movie killed on the street by the mariachi) says something in Spanish, and all start laughing - does anybody know what he says? 2)When the mariachi prepares to go to the Tarasco-Bar, in his bathroom, what song is played?

Answer: Tito Larriva as Tavo says (in reference to Steve Buscemi) that "This guy smells like shit." The name of the song being played is "Manifold de Amour" by Latin Playboys.
