Good movie, but hard to watch.
20 April 2018 | by alahyaSee all my reviews

I dislike how some people use the word "gay" for reviewing this movie. Evil is real, and it seduces swiftly, promising and caring deceitful, to finally take away your will, and have you psychologically under the spell of a monster that will consume it all, disguised as saint.

What's great about this movie?

It illustrates the loop very clear; starting with the search of love out of everything there is, going through a brief depiction of the family of the lead character, the social and historical background of Chile in the 80's.

The story is true, and it explains one of the biggest scandals of the Catholic church that still has consequences in the news nowadays.

It aims high to explain why the loop is so successful and widely criticized by others. the spiritual trap however is left to the judgment of the viewers.

The lows:

The movie is closer to a documentary, lacking of empathy and emotional connection with the audience.

It is mostly oriented to Chileans, for example, Pinochet appears in a TV briefly, but neither his name, nor the circumstances are explained. This is a pivotal piece of information, because it illustrates how the atmosphere of the film was filled with uncertainty, great fear to oppose the authority and widely accepted credibility towards the powerful Catholic Church.
