Cradle Song (Spanish: Canción de cuna) is a 1953 Mexican film. It was directed by Fernando de Fuentes.[1]


The daughter of a prostitute is abandoned in a convent where a nun cares for her, as she asks to not be taken to an hospice.



In Historia mínima. La cultura mexicana en el siglo XX, Carlos Monsiváis cites the film when describing what he considers a decline in the career of director Fernando de Fuentes: "The decline is incomprehensible: how is the director of Godfather Mendoza capable of committing monstrosities like Cradle Song (1953) and The Children of Maria Morales (1952)? Is it the exhaustion of a director or the crushing effect of an industry that allows neither rest nor the aesthetic ambitions of its creators?"[2] In Historia del cine mexicano, Emilio García Riera quotes the film together with Sor Alegría (1952) as films that "were about compliant, happy, and heavily made-up nuns."[3]
