A woman in her late-twenties called Silvia Prieto wants to improve herself. Her discovery of a second person also called Silvia Prieto will change her life forever. Maybe not the changes she hoped for.

ENT physicians gather at a provincial hotel in Salta. The hotel owner, Helena, is subdued, brittle, avoiding the calls of her ex-husband's pregnant wife. Family dysfunction seems everywhere. Helena's daughter, Amalia, about 14, discusses vocations in a Catholic girls group. Their teen imaginations conflate the erotic, the religious, and the lurid. Amalia notices Dr. Jano, and he notices her. She decides to make him her vocation, she follows him, he rubs against her in a public crowd, he's appalled at his actions. Meanwhile, Helena believes Jano is attracted to her even though he's married. Longing, guilt, scandal, and teen sensuality are set to collide. Written by
When you film a movie you can use your freedom to make whatever you want: you can tell a story or just put the focus on a segment of people's life and nothing more. For example, Lost In Translation is simple. Maybe you don't have a perfect start, middle and end. Just a couple of days of an actor. But its clear and have a drama behind. You feel the ambiance.
La Niña Santa it's a very poor try to use this kind of direction. It's not clear, it's not entertainment, it's not drama. Just people (you do not know who is each one), a place (where?), some relations (incomprehensibles) and little less than two hours boring. Bad idea (if exists one).
Some critics loves this movie. So, first watch it. Later you'll tell me that I'm right.
