The Holy Girl (LA NIÑA SANTA)
Release Date: Spring 2005
Director: Lucrecia Martel
Starring: Mercedes Moran, Carlos Belloso, Alejandro Urdapilleta, Maria Alche
THE HOLY GIRL (LA NIÑA SANTA), explores the burgeoning sexuality and religious fervor of two teenage girls, Amalia (MARIA ALCHÉ) and her best friend, Josefina (JULIETA ZYLBERBERG).
Artfully piecing together a mosaic of nuanced details, fragments of sounds, and small moments, Lucrecia Martel creates a potent and specific portrait of adolescent life.
Understanding the temptation of good - and the evil it causes - LA NIÑA SANTA delicately explores themes of sin, frustration and desire.
