Love That Moves Sun and Planets

The bereaved father who's lost his seven year old daughter, upon visiting her grave twelve years later, finds his daughter's body perfectly preserved - just as he had left it. His fellow townspeople call the event a miracle but the town bishop wants the child reburied. The father must fight his way through political and religious obstacles to have his daughter declared a first Colombian Saint.

Undying father's love and devotion for his innocence child that perform miracles in Roma - that's what this screen adaptation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's short story "La Santa" is about. Moving and heartwarming, darkly comical and satirical, the movie is simple and profound in the same time.

7.5/10
