A BraveMovie ... a little charged though
16 May 2006 | by nachoeguillorSee all my reviews

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.
