Synopsis

Ripstein's cheeky religious drama, with clear Buñuelian overtones, premiered in the prestigious Un Certain Regard at Cannes. Based on actual events that took place in Mexico during the 1970s, Mama Dorita (Mexican screen legend Katy Jurado) leads a cult with Papa Basilio (Spain's Francisco Rabal) whose love of film causes him to choose Hollywood Biblical epic costumes for the religious group.
