In the 1870s, Jacobina, daughter of German immigrants to southern Brazil, starts to break with both the Catholic and Lutheran churches to preach body healing through soul cleansing. After having a divine vision and speaking with Jesus, she suddenly changes her look and usual ways, disturbing the local, ultra conservative population. After the death of a "mucker" and two others opposing her sect, the local authorities decide to act against her and her followers. Written by
A predictable drama with the worst structure and lack of veracity.
"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.
