Morality in Madeinusa

           As i said before in Madeinusa, morality is completely thrown out the door !  Not only is there large parties full of drinking and adultery , but Madeinusa’s dad planned to (and succeeded on) having sex with her with her sister right next to them. Though moments before this happened Madeinusa had sex with Salvador in an alley. There are men drunk on the street, there are murders of both people and animals during this time. though as someone mentioned in one of my previous posts, this reminded them of the movie  the purge  because in that movie , the people are allowed to do what ever is wanted with out any penalty , and it is when freedom like this is given that all morality is lost. Though Paul Ramsey would say that these two days of Tiempo Santo that this can act as a way to benefit the community, much like how the people in the purge thought. Ramsey said that there is ” no morality without immorality” .

Whats most ironic about this is that they are celebrating this time due to their religion, though they are going against all of the religions morals during this time.

              What a paradox.

Gluttony (sin) Gluttony is exemplified through out the movie as the town’s people all over indulge on alcohol and begin to act really careless.

Lust (sin)

How ironic that the Virgin Mary is loosing her virginity in a dark alley, but according to the movie, this isnt considered a sin because its within the holy time. Though , according to the seven deadly sins , lust in fact is a sin. Madeinusa had only met Salvador ( the young man in this gif) about a day before she decided that she wanted him and she wanted to leave with him, run away to Lima ,Peru . Though not only did she have sex with Salvador this night, but once she got home she was then taken by her father – something they had been planning for tiempo santo because it wouldn’t be a sin. Morality is out the door in this movie. Completely.

Envy (sin)

Chale is Madeinusa’s older and envious sister. We are unaware if she has this attitude of envy before tiempo santo , but through out the

whole movie (basically through out the whole Tiempo Santo) she tends to look and talk at her sister as though Madeinusa took something from her . We watch as she scowls at her and says her eyes are the color of “shit” . While Chale isnt one of the most likable characters in the movie , she is one of the only people who doesn’t fall for Madeinusa’s charm that everyone else seems to fall for. I assume she is jealous because not only did she not win the pagent in order to represent the virgin Mary during tiempo santo , but she doesn’t get as much

attention as Madeinusa does from their father.
