About the film



Laura Maña's directing debut makes a mockery of Latin machismo culture in a light-hearted, slightly surreal and moving way. COMPASSIONATE SEX starts sombrely: in a washed-out Mexican village, all the inhabitants are really dissatisfied. Couples quarrel and children refuse to talk. Old Leocadia is bed-ridden and the priest is depressed. Only the heroine Dolores, who has been deserted by her husband, continues to do her good deeds. But when she realises that she has been deserted because she is too good, she decides to go to bed with the first one to ask for it. Amazingly this deed saves the life of the chosen bed partner, making the deliberate sin a good deed, too. Dolores decides to help all the men in the village in the same way, and soon the village blossoms and life again becomes colourful.
