It's Easter in the beach house of a Chilean well-to-do and nowadays family. A self-centered and successful father, a disoriented mother and a son overshadowed by his successful father. The three of them, wait for the arrival of the son's first official girlfriend; a disturbing and rebellious young lady who will invade the house with her powerful sexual load and other "gifts", breaking loose an emotional cataclysm with no stepping back.Written by
La Sagrada Familia is a movie filled with emotions... it's a heavy emotional burden if you get INTO the movie. The fact that the movie has no script makes it SO natural to hear ... I really believed what I saw ... (spite the fact that Patty Lopez isn't the great actress this movie needed). Everything done in this movie is real,that's why it's so powerful to watch. The entire movie develops in Holy week, and in the 3 days of it (friday till Sunday afternoon) tries to show how Chilean people are, to be more specific, people who live in Santiago, young people, how parents are, drugs, sex, homosexuality, how away from the church WE, young adults tend to be, all these issues are a little tabooed in Chilean society. A brave movie I recommend it totally ... but it tried so hard to cause controversy in Chile that it kinda exaggerated a little.
