Santa (1932) is the first Mexican narrative sound film. It was directed by Antonio Moreno and starred Lupita Tovar, based on the novel of the same name by Federico Gamboa. In 1994, the Mexican magazine Somos published their list of "The 100 best movies of the cinema of Mexico" in its 100th edition and named Santa its 67th choice.
A gorgeous and humble Mexican girl name Santa Tovar is being cheated by her arrogant husband, soldier Marcelino. After being rejected by family and friends she finds shelter in a whore house and becomes a bitter and cynic woman.
