| Important topic inside an awful film.
I was really excited to watch this movie, and I went out from the theater truly disappointed. Here is why:

Story: Of course I was interested in watching this film after Spring Break or "Holly Week" in Mexico because I knew about the controversy that was going to make on the premiere. Despite being a Catholic myself, I was glad to see the "dark side" from church and some justice for those abused innocent children. However, I was not happy about the result. There were many, many missing aspects and cases, especially from Father Maciel, who did a lot more atrocities.

Script: Not well written, no memorable lines, not a good plot.

Plot: Boring, scene transitions are quick and do not explain anything at all, and contains a lot of plot holes.

Direction: Horrible. If the script was bad, obviously the direction also will be.

Acting: Excellent, everyone was good, except the main actor (Julian) who seems Kristen Stewart's brother.

Scenery: Beautiful and appropriate to the time where the story is set.

Cinematography: I'm glad that Mexico is improving its camera shots and visual quality.

Score: One of the best things from this film. Every musical theme fits in every scene, and the song election was appropriate.

Genre: They try so hard to add some drama, but they totally fail. I had seen more convincing crying.

Edition: The voice-over did not sound well at times, and did not fit with background music. Sometimes I couldn't understand what the narrator said.

I'm sad that such important topic wasn't addressed in this awful film, but at least I hope that people start to take care of their children and not listen everything religion teaches. Director's intentions were good, but failed at the end.

6.4/10
