Movie Info

This tantalizing blend of eroticism and mysticism was adapted from a novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Erendira (Claudia Ohana) has a strange and wondrous vision; shortly afterward, her grandmother's house burns down. The grandmother (Irene Papas) gets her revenge by forcing Erendira to become a prostitute. As the "johns" become increasingly prosperous (along with grandma), Erendira keeps her wits about her by experiencing even more bizarre visions. Veteran European character actor Michel Lonsdale has an effective cameo as a hypocritical senator. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

I don't know if I'd exactly say I liked it, but it's too fascinating to dismiss, too interestingly made to ignore%u2014and certainly not something I'll soon forget.

Garcia Marquez story "La candida Erendira" was taken into film with Irene Papas. Not so good cinematography but an extremely well edited script.
