El cuarto mandamiento (film)

El cuarto mandamiento (Spanish: The Fourth Commandment) is a 1948 Mexican drama film directed by Rolando Aguilar and starring Domingo Soler, Carmelita González, Sara Montes and Emma Roldán.[1] The film's sets were designed by Manuel Fontanals.[2] The film is about a family that is worried that their daughter is courted by a rich young man who likes the nightlife and luxury cars. The film is considered part of a group of family melodramas made in this period in which the dramatic tension revolves around old values, linked to a conservative order rooted in the past, which are pitted against new values associated with modernity, such as Cuando los hijos se van and A Family Like Many Others.[3]
