  • "Ambientada en la década de 1920 en México, en medio de la Guerra Cristera. Victoria (María Félix) es violada por un sacerdote católico y a partir de esa experiencia se vuelve enemiga de la religión, especialmente de los sacerdotes, así que presta sus servicios al gobierno para combatir a los cristeros y acabar con la religión. Pero un día se enamora del Dr. Federico Lamadrid (Arturo de Córdova), que despierta en ella emociones encontradas que pondrán en jaque muchas de sus creencias, fobias y prejuicios, sobre todo cuando descubra, que en realidad, el Dr. Lamadrid, es un sacerdote disfrazado."

  • "1913: A young woman is raped by a priest and turns away from the Church as a result of the experience. 1924: She now is the owner of an expensive brothel, and she plays a small role on both sides of the Cristero Uprising, hen foreign-born clergy were deported from Mexico."

  • "Though Miercoles de Ceniza was released in English-speaking countries as Ash Wednesday, it bears no relation to the much-later Elizabeth Taylor vehicle of the same name. Virtually plotless, the film is a paean to the pomp, ceremony and splendor of the Catholic Church, as seen through the eyes of individual parishioners. The cinematography of Agustin Martinez Solares is superb, even when very little is going on. And the presence of Maria Felix and Arturo de Cordova in the cast assured the film a respective box-office take, despite its overall lack of a storyline. American distribution of Miercoles de Ceniza was hampered by the talkiness of the script, which required more than the usual alottment of subtitles."
