Of Love and Other Demons (Del amor y otros demonios) / COLOMBIA / 2009 / Hilda Hidalgo / DRAMA / 97 mins
Synopsis: During a time of inquisition and slavery, Sierva María wants to know what kisses taste like. She is 13 years old, daughter of aristocrats but raised by their African slaves living in colonial Cartagena de Indias. When a rabid dog bites her, the bishop declares she is possessed and entrust Cayetano his pupil, with her exorcism. The priest and the girl Hill find themselves seduced by a demon more powerful than faith and reason. With an intimate, personal narrative and a visual lenguaje reminiscent of Renaissance paintings, Of love and other demons is based on one of Gabriel García Márquez`s (Nobel Literatura Prize 1982) most harrowing love stories.
