Audience Reviews for Desierto Adentro

½

This movie is a poetic allegory that makes you think hard about the meaning and strength of your faith in the face of a terrible circumstance.

How would you seek penance for a terrible deed committed? Would you seek to repair it, ignore it, or obsess over seeking forgiveness?

These are some of the questions raised in this harrowing tale of a man who is forced to protect his family from a cursed past he has built as a foundation for a shaky future with them. Is there really such a thing as self-fulfilling prophecy? How far should a man go to try avoiding what is inevitably written in the storybook of his own life?

With a family that comprises eight children, this man must starts a new life in the Mexican desert in order to escape his sinful past. But the memories of his misfortune will continue to haunt him--as well as his children--for the rest of his life.

Desierto Adentro really makes you examine what it means seek redemption. It is an indictment on the hypocrisy of a faith that would have you commit countless more sins in order to mend the original sin committed.

This is definitely a heavy movie with lots of heavy themes and ideologies and philosophies. It is not for the casual movie-goer who does not want a learning experience--or at least a thinking one.
