One of the most controversial Mexican films ever made, The Crime of Father Amaro (original title: El crimen del Padre Amaro) is about a 24 year old priest (Gael García Bernal) who’s sent to a church in a small town. His arrival sets off a chain reaction of thorny politics, sexual relationships, and betrayal, after he falls in love with an underage girl. Renegado dives in to find out if the controversy is enough to make the film worth watching.
