In 1983, as Chilean demonstrations against Pinochet's military regime gathered strength, the government seized upon the strange story of 14-year-old street teen Miguel Angel as a means of diverting attention from the public's growing discontent. In Peñablanca, not far from Valparaíso, the charismatic Angel swore he could see the Virgin Mary at the top of a local hill and, with the government doing all it could to promote this "miracle", hundreds of thousands of people made the pilgrimage to the "holy" spot. Soon Angel had attained rock-star status - with all the perks the term implies - until, inevitably, he fell fast and hard... Shot on 16mm film for a documentary feel, the film follow the investigation of an increasingly skeptical priest into this affair.

about faith
27 October 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

a film about faith. simple, bizarre, full of ambiguity. a boy. and the others. the pain. and the desires. and the time like a large circle. it is difficult to say if it is a movie against Church or only a too honest perspective about religion. because many scenes are familiar. like many tools of recreate the divine. and the bitter social portrait is one of the most inspired. but, maybe only at the first sigh, something missing. maybe the coherence of message. or the purpose of director. the acting is not bad and the story could seems be a kind of manifesto. but, something missing. and this does it only another film about faith.
