Una Mujer Sin Precio (1961)


When the perfectionist scientist, Dr. Víctor Junco loses his wife, Maribella to a car accident he builds a robotic version to replace her. When he realizes he can continue to “perfect” his wife he eventually creates the “perfect” woman but perfection has a price.

This film is Moctezuma II’s second film and his biggest budget film. While trying to fit in the studio system Moctezuma II could not resist inserting his own tongue in cheek style with as much sexuality as possible! While successful with audiences, the unions and the government where not happy.

This 15min version for festivals cuts out Víctor’s lamenting scenes and the final montage scene as Víctor transforms Maribella into a “perfect” woman.
