Unusual... ahead of its time

A superficial viewing of this film might lead you to believe that this is just another Mexican over-the-top melodrama. But when you set your mind to it and realize what's going on, you are in for surprises.

For starters, the saga of a female physician (Marga Lopez) accused of murdering her own son, is set in the context of a television show where a panel of "experts" discusses the facts in front of studio audience. Supposedly, everyone in the nation is following the broadcast including the accused woman and others involved. It seems like the outcome (the guilt or innocence of the lady doctor) will be decided right on television and for the viewer's convenience there'll be no commercials. They don't explain why nobody bothered to take the case to court for a judge and jury to decide ... so, there! This is "Reality TV" at work way before its time and without commercials! But that is not all.

The script written by Julio Alejandro manages to address some subjects considered taboo in 1960 Mexico: euthanasia and Catholic values versus atheist humanism. Isn't that daring? Libertad Lamarque would have never touch such a film.
