Movie Info

JESÚS follows eighteen-year-old Jesús, who is trapped in a dead-end cycle of drugs, sex, apathy, and an obsession with violence. Living in a small flat with his widower father, Hector, where the TV covers up their inability to communicate, is not helping matters. After his band loses a competition, Jesús and his friends get drunk and head out, looking for a thrill. They finally find it in a cemetery: a young defenseless boy crosses their path, and violence ensues. Soon, the attack is national news, and the police are searching for those responsible. Desperate to avoid the authorities as well as his friends, Jesús has no choice but to turn to his father for help. But, when the flesh of your flesh is rotten, will you go to any extent to protect it, or will you cut it loose? If this event makes Jesús and Hector closer than ever, it will also tear them apart forever.

Jesus' sex scenes are pretty explicit but this actually serves a purpose, as the studiedly careless way in which Guzzoni has choreographed and shot them helps suggest something about the character's more than casual attitude towards intimacy.

Aug 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Superbly lensed in a jittery chiaroscuro by Uruguayan cinematographer Barbara Alvarez, "Jesús" investigates the darkest side of adolescence, raising a number of moral questions without providing easy answers.

Aug 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Fernando Guzzoni's film is unnecessarily exploitative at worst and middling at best.
