The story of the sexually abusive relationship of a 13-year-old seminarian to the religious leader and figurehead of a Catholic seminary in Mexico, whose device to establish compliance in the young boy consists in the three steps of St Ignatius of Loyola leading to perfect obedience.Written by
Subtle and terrifying at the same time. Greatly performed.
This is what happens when you have such great actors, a quite interesting/shocking/real topic to develop and the talent to picture all of that without being unnecessarily explicit.
Absolutely a great Mexican film, the acting that Juan Manuel Bernal gives is just outstanding and precise, the children look spontaneous but traumatized along with their unbelievably blind parents.
The story is terrible and even hideous which only feeds the capacity that the movie has to transmit that and to make you feel terrible and shocked of the evilness that a human being can posses. The subtlety of this film is horrifying and quite effective.
If you are looking for a graphic movie without any important reflection of this disgusting/human topic then this is not your call, on the other hand what you are going to find here is an outrageous story perfectly and subtly depicted with the only purpose to terrify your very deep human side.
