Audience Reviews for Maria Candelaria (Xochimilco)

  • Jun 23, 2015
    After a journalist(Beatriz Ramos) asks a famous artist(Alberto Galan) about a painting that he refuses to publicly show, he tells a sad story about Maria Candelaria(Dolores del Rio) who has been shunned by the local villagers. Circumstances have forced her to travel to sell some of her flowers in order to pay off some longstanding debts but even her great courage is no match for the villagers' flotilla. Only Lorenzo(Pedro Armendariz) is willing to speak up for her. "Maria Candelaria" might be old fashioned melodrama but that does not mean it cannot also be well-executed and entertaining. In fact, the movie also tackles such timely issues as the dangers of mob rule and hypocrisy. Plus, there is the fact that the entire movie is centered around a nude painting, such sensuality being far ahead of its time. At the same time, the painter is not left off the hook, which is a nice touch in adding some ambiguity to the mix.
