The worst sin is watch this movie
13 June 2005 | by mcarraraSee all my reviews

When the film opened in theaters in Mexico city, in 1957 I was a 10 year old kid, so the censors put me out of the line outside the theater. Then the film disappeared for more of forty years, because the leading lady Christianne Martel, former 1953 Miss France, after a very short career in Hollywood ended in the Mexican cinema and became very popular. Eventually she married a prominent Mexican politician, that baned all her films from exhibition, even in television. Suddenly last year, the film appeared in DVD. so I run to buy it. No nudity at all, all the time some plant or animal gets the closeup to protect the "private parts" from the camera. Some times Adam and Eve look like martians due to the rubber "leotards" that the couple wears in some scenes where no bush or object protect them. Bad taste, bad acting (If there is any) even car bored eastmancolor. Pedro Almodóver or John Waters will love the film if they had the chance to see it.
