Told in fourteen fixed-angle, single shot, individual tableaus that parallel Christ's journey to his own crucifixion, this film is both an indictment of fundamentalist faith and the articulation of an impressionable teen's struggle to find her own path in life. Though from the outside Maria lives in the modern world, her family and her heart are faithful to a Catholic radicalism that requires sacrifice and devotion at every turn. As she struggles to balance her own desires with the dictates of her family's faith, she makes ever more perilous sacrifices, attempting to please a God she worships unquestioningly in the pious hopes of curing the autistic younger brother she adores.

A very artistic film about the dangers and consequences of religious fanaticism upon fragile and still developing young minds. Highly, highly recommended!

Excellent example of the Shame and Blame Game played by abusive or neglectful parents leaving their children eternally confused about their relationship with the divine.

Tightly written, psychologically true, tightly shot, hauntingly directed, all performances believably performed, but especially the young woman who plays the leading role is just phenomenal. One to watch as she matures throughout her career.

For such darkly questioning material, there are a surprising number of laugh-out-loud moments too. I picked this one up a number of times before I watched it, and was not at all disappointed.
