Story


In order to save an orphanage from closure, a priest (Black) dons a masks and moonlights as a luchador.

Raised in the monastery where he is now the cook, Nacho finds a way to earn money for the holy place by wrestling, even though it is strictly forbidden by the church elders. Naturally, Nacho isn't acting out of purely altruistic measures, as he wishes to help Sister Encarnacion, a beautiful Mexican nun who has recently arrived at the monastery.

by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..an amiably clunky, unapologetically silly summer confection..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [The Hollywood Reporter]
“..sporadically funny, often tedious, and frustratingly self-satisfied..”
by David Mercier [FilmJudge]
