La Malquerida ("The Unloved") is a Mexican film from 1949 based on the novel of the same by Jacinto Benavente. It was directed by Emilio Fernández, and starred Dolores del Río and Pedro Armendáriz.

Plot summary[edit]

In the ranch of El Soto lives Raymunda (Dolores del Río) and her daughter, Acacia (Columba Domínguez). After she is widowed, Raymunda marries Esteban (Pedro Armendáriz). What Raymunda does not suspect is that a deep passion has arisen between Acacia and Esteban. The misfortune is that the men who approach Acacia have a tragic end, and because of this, they begin to call her "La Malquerida" ("The Unloved").


This movie ended the collaboration between Dolores del Río and Emilio Fernández (started seven years before with Flor silvestre and continued with Maria Candelaria, in 1943, Las Abandonadas (1944) and Bugambilia (1945)), but catapulted the cinema of México onto the world stage.
