This Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film centers around a young priest, Father Amaro (Gael Garcia Bernal), who is sent to a small parish church in Los Reyes, Mexico to assist the aging Father Benito (Sancho Gracia). There the ambitious Father meets Amelia (Ana Claudia Talancon), a beautiful 16-year-old whose religious devotion soon becomes entangled in an attraction to the new priest. The exposure of corruption in the Church scandalizes the town, while Amelia and Father Amaro fall in love and begin a passionate sexual relationship. Amelia asks him to leave the priesthood to marry her, but Amaro's eyes have been opened to the power the Church can offer an ambitious young priest. Torn between the divine and the carnal, Father Amaro must choose which life he will lead.
