Plot: A newly-ordained priest, Padre Amaro, arrives in Los Reyes, a small town in the fictional state of Aldama, to start his life serving the church. Young Amaro soon becomes infatuated with the beautiful Amelia a local sixteen-year-old girl, and politics and sexual passions threaten to corrupt him.

Why See It: When it was released El Crimen del Padre Amaro caused a controversy on the part of Roman Catholic groups in Mexico who tried to stop the film from being screened. They failed, and the film became the biggest box office draw ever in the country, beating previous record holder, Sexo, pudor y lágrimas.

Cast: Gael García Bernal, Ana Claudia Talancon
