A Fine Movie, Unjustly Neglected.

Author: blainefielding from United States
17 November 2007

It is too bad this fine Mexican movie has not gotten more attention in the U.S. It is a finely made study of parental conflict.

Set in Mexico City after the disastrous 1985 earthquake, "Lola" follows a young single mother's conflicted life with her five- year old daughter. Although Lola adores her child, she is trapped in a dire economic situation. She survives by participating in an illegal street vending business. And she seeks a life of pleasure, while at the same time she tries to fulfill her obligations to her child.

The actress who plays Lola is superb. She is the center of the movie and carries it brilliantly.

The DVD has an excellent Special Feature with the Director and actors that greatly helps in understanding the movie.

I got this movie at our library, but it is well worth purchasing as well.

About the images of the city.

Author: Pedro Zavala ( from Mexico
3 August 1999

Although there is not a central history on the movie, the shots of the city after the '85 earthquake shows the real state of the city and its habitants. The long walks of Lola let us see the dirty walls and old buildings up to fall. Maybe the last chance to remember how was the city.
