Films in 50 words-ish: El crimen del Padre Amaro (The Crime of Father Amaro)

Buy it!Someone’s got a chip on their shoulder. Amaro descends into anti-Catholic rant far to quickly. All priests are corrupt and powerfully untouchable from the start, churchgoers are mad and witchlike. Why should we care?

A disappointing 3 out of 10.

If you found my comments useful, let Amazon know by clicking El Crimen Del Padre Amaro [2002] and hitting the ‘yes’ button underneath their copy of this review. You may buy while you’re there.
