Good but troubling angle
7 February 2017 | by floatingpolarbearSee all my reviews

This is the second Chilean movie dealing with priest sex abuse that makes it seem more like a gay seduction May December relationship than a rape situation. The movie is very well made. The characters are very real and all the nuances are there ... but ... it is troubling. It made me think that perhaps the church would prefer that the public views things this way. The victim in this case is portrayed more like a guy who can't quite come out of the closet and views the priesthood as a commitment to being gay. Sure, I can understand a situation like that but it's a dangerous generalization to suppose all or most cases of sex abuse are like this. The main theme of the movie seems to be that it takes two to tango. It is not fair to the victims.
