In the middle of the Sixteenth Century, in Castilla, the daughter of a nobleman Teresa de Ahumada (Paz Vegas) joins a convent administrated by the Superior Mother (Geraldine Chaplin) seeking a spiritual life. After a period of prays and sacrifice, she claims that she has visions with Jesus, attracting the attention of the church in times of religious pursue, changes and Inquisition.

The story of this Spanish saint is boring and uses the sexuality of Paz Vegas to raise polemic, with her erotic visions of Jesus. The cinematography, costumes and set decoration are great, but I did not like the story of this movie, not because I am religious or bigot, but because it is an unsatisfactory plot developed in an extreme low-pace. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Teresa, o Corpo de Cristo" ("Teresa, The Body of Christ")
