VIRGIN OF LUST
LA VIRGEN DE LA LUJURIA
A film by Arturo Ripstein
Spain, Mexico, Portugal
The 40's, Mexico.
Ignacio Jurado, "El Mikado" is a waiter, rather reserved and lonely.
His days go by among the Ofelia Café and his collection of pornographic photographs.
Nevertheless, everything changes when Lola (Ariadna Gil), a Spanish prostitute of a certain self-destructive and unpredictable tenderness, bursts in his life.
A sadomasochistic relation will arise between them.
El Mikado will do whatever in order to gain Lola's love?
Whatever, even killing Franco.
