Abandoned at birth at the gates of a Capuchin monastery in Madrid, Brother Ambrosio (Cassel), raised by the friars, grows up into a preacher admired far and wide for his fervor. Ambrosio is feared for his righteousness and believes he is immune from temptation - until the arrival of a mysterious apprentice undermines his convictions and leads him down a dangerous path of sin, corruption and murder.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..ultimately the movie disappoints, falling between two stools and failing to convince either as spectacle or as a fable about religious obsession..”
by Bernard Besserglik [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the film promises arthouse thrills and spills. Sadly, it fails to deliver..”
by Tara Brady [Irish Times]
“..has mounted it with an outstanding cinematographer..”
by Tim Robey [The Telegraph]
