4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but Predictable 16 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Rather heavy on imagery and very predictable in terms of plot, this film still pulls through with the help of a strong cast and beautiful locations. Although projecting a rather dim view of the Catholic Church it didn't seem to attack it gratuitously as it focused on the different character flaws of the priests featured. To me this seemed to convey the fallibility of us all rather than attacking the Church as a whole. If you want to see a film critical of the Catholic Church then perhaps The Magdalene Sisters would be a better choice but worth seeing just for the chemistry between Gael Garcia Bernal and Ana Claudia Talancon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful yet Controversial 29 April 2004
This is a film about the choice between desire and duty. Others have saidit's an attack on the catholic Church but to me it is more a story ofhuman nature, desire and error. It is a delight to watch not only for thestoryline but also for the beautiful settings. That said, the plot,although intruiging, is somewhat predictable but the acting is superb andthe thought-provoking ending ensures it is one of the bestspanish-language films I've seen for a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life is predictable in many cases 12 Oct 2006
By Sir
Bit slow,maybe...but the acting is great! Please only if you are blind...

Although trying to bring it to the present days if you have ever read the famous book from which it was adapted and put it into the time context from when it was written, it wouldn't be so predictable as some said.

Nevertheless, life is predictable in many cases. This isn't a hollyood film, when an alien invasion happens without being expected. The beauty perhaps is the simplicity of real life and that you can't ran away from it...

People nowadays just go to the cinema to be impressed by unrealistic events... why not try also to be engage in real life situations?!

That's the difference between Hollywood films and the rest of the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars inspired me to learn spanish 28 Sep 2003
of course, i may be biased seeing as the leading actor (who plays father amaro) is the beautiful and talented Gael Garcia Bernal. despite that, this is a powerful and moving story of a handsome young priest who impregnates a sixteen year old girl during their acts of love.
with the dark humour and thought provoking ending, this is a must-see-again film. and if thats not enough... watch it just for Gael. it'll leave you breathless

4.0 out of 5 stars A diiferent era 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this film. It arrived from Germany in record time and I loved seeing Gael Garcia Bernal in this role shedding light on a different era.

This film caused quite an uproar in México and was only permitted to be distributed several years after completion.

It's theme is quite strident and to the uninitiated could be offensive. It tells a story that has elements of truth, especially given the state of the war between the Government and the drug traffickers that is currently taken place in México. It's content could also be unacceptable to Catholics.

I found the film "over the top" as it does not represent the México I know and love.

Interesting but not very entertaining. Not for the fainthearted!
