The Road of Life (Spanish: El camino de la vida) is a 1956 Mexican drama film directed by Alfonso Corona Blake. At the 6th Berlin International Film Festival it won the Honourable Mention (Director) award.[1]

The film is about three young criminal boys who await sentencing in Mexico City's Juvenile Court. One boy murdered his stepfather to protect his mother; the second boy blinded his chief tormentor; and the third resorts to stealing to support his family. Lawyer Enrique Lucero begins the task of rehabilitating the three to become good and be acceptable to society.[2]
