Polvo Enamorado


Highly controversial with an intense storyline between religion passion, Polvo Enamorado, shown at the Miami International Film Festival 2004, has often been described as the Peruvian version of The Crime of Father Amaro (Nominated Best Foreign Language Film) Natalia, a young girl in her twenties is married to Matias Rosales, the 60-year old Mayor of a coastal town in Peru. A devout Catholic, Natalia left the convent as a novice at 17 to marry Matias, who promised he would respect her chastity. He loves her intensely – so much so, that at night, he drops sleeping powder in her coffee so he can rape her. Sullen Natalia attends Mass daily, takes part in religious processions and otherwise has little to do in the dusty town. When the old parish priest retires, he’s replaced by Santiago, a handsome man in his 30s, and Natalia’s life takes an unexpected twist: she falls in love. Santiago, a priest with a social conscience, starts strong but succumbs to passion. Torn between the divine and the carnal, the righteous and the unjust, Santiago must summon his strength to choose which life he will lead.
