"La Dolorosa" is historically important for several reasons. First, it is the only film entirely directed by Grémillon in Spanish. Second, it was the very first zarzuela (popular Spanish opera) to be filmed as a 'talkie'. Third, it made, in the hotbed years immediately before the Civil War, a remarkably daring comment on religious and social intolerance. Religious feeling, it implies, is in essence little more than sexual sublimation.
