El rincón de las virgenes = The virgin's corner ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1972 in Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this satire, a group of fanatically religious women from the small town of Comala starts a campaign for the canonization of Anacleto Morones and asks his former associate, Lucas Lucatero, to testify on behalf of Morones. Lucatero declines, knowing full well that Morones manipulated the people of Comala, particularly the attractive women, with lies in order to earn their trust and faith. A series of flash-backs exposes two contrasting perspectives on Morones: that of the believers, and that of Morones' skeptical and envious assistant, Lucatero. Lucatero is no saint himself, and it becomes increasingly clear that Morones' disappearance is not the holy miracle it was believed to have been, but the cruel result of jealousy and foul play"--Mexican Cinema Project, 1994
