Storyline

Dolores is a mature and kind woman whose husband abandons her because he can't stand her uncanny generosity. Desperate to get her husband back, she devotes her life to works of charity, which is to go to bed with the other men of the town. Dolores, now "Lolita", becomes so famous that all men seek out her help now. It is through her compassionate sex that she brings back the color and the happiness to a town that was immersed in sadness. La historia de Dolores, una mujer madura y bondadosa. Tan buena es, que el marido decide abandonarla, y ella, en un intento desesperado por recuperarlo decide hacer obras de caridad pecando con los otros hombres del pueblo. Ahora todos los hombres quieren conocer a Dolores -ahora Lolita- que, con su sexo por compasión, devolverá el color y la alegría a un pueblo que se encontraba hundido en la tristeza.

Wistful on surface, warm and vibrant in its heart
28 January 2006 | by (Tampere, Finland) – See all my reviews

Much like "Lolita", the main character of the film, "Sexo por compasión", the film, revitalizes the desire to live in all who experience her. The beginnings of the film are decidedly gloomy and grey, but it grows colourful and cheerful. During its progress, it touches on sensitive themes of love and sex with a profound understanding. Despite its adult themes, the movie is as far removed from porn and "erotica" as possible. It is intended indeed for mature viewers, who do not need nudity or sweaty sex scenes to understand the themes.

This is a strong movie on all accounts. Deliberate directing, charming characters and an optimistic view of life bring it well through. What's noteworthy about the characters is that they aren't cast into restrictive roles, instead they work together to create a living village. Humorous, warm-hearted and imaginative, everybody should see Sexo por compasión.
