Amok is a 1944 Mexican romantic drama film directed by Antonio Momplet and starring María Félix and Julián Soler.[2][3][4][5] The film is based on the novel Der Amokläufer by author Stefan Zweig.


A doctor (Julián Soler) embezzles the proceeds of his Parisian clinic in order to better support the manipulative woman (María Félix) with whom he is having an affair. After losing all the money while gambling, he is forced to flee to an undeveloped region of India. There, he tries to mitigate the onslaught of a disease the natives term "Amok", while his past mistakes still plague him, especially when a mysterious woman, Mrs. Belmont (María Félix), appears in his office. The surprising physical resemblance of the woman with her previous lover will end up driving him insane.
