Niño Santo

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

*Plot and ending analyzed*

Niño Santo was on Spanish TV for a while, but then it disappeared. I started watching it while living in Colombia. It started out interesting, with a creepy feeling to the whole thing. I liked the secluded jungle setting.

Some medical students visit an isolated village that is infected with some disease, but what they find is startling. They find the people in terror and some weird 'saint-type' man who may be able to cure people. He controls the whole place.

Ultimately it seems that it may cast the realm of science and medicine against the realm of superstition. In South America there is still plenty of curanderos ('faith healing') and products that are intended to cure all types of ailments. Most of it is quackery and rubbish, but the plants of the Amazon do indeed produce cures.

Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal were the producers.

Niño Santo was filmed in Mexico, so it's nice to see it on TV again.

In Spanish with no subtitles.
