"Darin stars in this one as a sleazy, ambulance chasing personal injury lawyer who gets caught up in an escalating cycle of violence and while personal injury law may not strike you as the sexiest of topics the just-released trailer for this one is absolutely fantastic. Yes, please." - Instituto Cervantes de Manila

"In 1840's Buenos Aires, Argentina, a beautiful young socialite named Camila falls in love with Ladislao, a Jesuit priest. After several failed attempts at fighting his own feelings, he ultimately succumbs to her. The two later escape to a far off, secluded village where they assume new identities as husband and wife and begin running a children's school. After several months of relative happiness, the couple's identity is discovered by a local priest. Under moralistic pressure from both Camila's family and the Catholic church the authorities apprehend the lovers, and imprison them for sacrilege." - Instituto Cervantes de Manila
