A predictable drama with the worst structure and lack of veracity.
7 September 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

"Jacobina" is a boring film about religious, obsessions, sin and forgiveness that make you feel embarrassed as a spectator. It's obvious that this director had been under the influence of the traditional ingredients of the low production of Latino television soap-opera. A boring script, awful acting, terrible editing and the worst directing I have seen in the last years, with all the ingredients of a awful film about the story of the woman who convinced her follower that she was a Jesus apostle in 1870s in a little town of Brazil. The production values are totally cheap, lacking research and authenticity. I don't know why I didn't leave the screening room in the first 15 minutes when was obvious the product I will see at the end.
