Editorial Reviews

Manita, who is concerned because her husband hasn't had sex with her in months, decides to visit a mysterious woman, Lurdita, who is believed to be a witch. Lurdita asks Manita to change the virgin of the church to the black virgin. Behind everybody's back and with the approval of Isabel, the founder of the town, the black virgin becomes their new patron. Strange things now begin to happen in this fishing village changing the routine of its inhabitants: there is no longer darkness, the violence is stopped, and people fall in love again. Lurdita (who is also believed to be the builder of the black virgin) leaves the town saying others might need her help. One morning, kids are playing baseball and a ball gets hit so hard that it breaks the image of the black virgin. Concerns arise again in the town as things begin to change once more.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By G. Teslovich on August 29, 2010
Format: DVD
Positive:
It's hard to describe this movie especially if the viewer's understanding of European settlement of the central and southern Americas is limited. A spanish matron settles into and develops a small Americas' fishing village and witnesses the interplay of folk religion with Christian Catholicism; black with white culture; contemporary hedonistic morals with traditional principled morals; superstition whether it's magic or faith and the consequences of pursuing one vs. the other.

Negative:
The narration of the story comes largely from the youngest members of the village; the outside threats of violence; the sunset and birds symbolism and ending made the story a little too obtuse and difficult to follow.

This is a funny, guilty pleasure film which is great for a pick me up.
Full of great actors and a quirky spoof on common Latin superstitions - not meant to be taken seriously.
