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.

Who are we to judge others?What is right and what wrong?
30 June 2007 | by margo-16See all my reviews

A movie that gives ground for reflection and thought .What is justice and how we judge others ? Do we judge based on their actions or based on their intentions? If people judge Lolita based on her actions she should be condemned as a whore and realizing that they start throwing the biblical stones at her.

If they judge her based on her compassionate nature and good intentions to help the poor unloved men – then she should be regarded as a saint.

Interesting –who are we to judge others. What is right and what wrong? Under what circumstances something is wrong or right? One of the best movies I've seen recently. Kudos for Laura Mana- writer and director.
