" Condemnation by the Catholic Church actually helped make this melodrama about unchaste priests a blockbuster in its native Mexico."

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E2 - February 2012 (34 movies items)

" This film was up for quite a few awards and clearly focuses on the issues of corruption and immorality within the Catholic church. Which since I'm not Catholic I hardly needed my faith rocked to the core nor did I need a morality tale. Personally, I think the film went a little over the top with demonizing the leaders of the church and found the story to be predictable. Still, if you want to watch a film sure to offend any one of the Catholic faith, this would be the film to watch. "
