The devil comes to Colombia in the form of a dog whose rabid bite infects the blue-blood of a teenage, red-haired Rapunzel (Eliza Triana). Abandoned at a hellish convent by her father, the young girl eventually falls in love with her exorciser (Pablo Derqui). Many have tried, but when it comes to translating author Gabriel García Márquez's sensual prose to the screen, none can hold a candle to sure-footed, first-time writer/director Hilda Hidalgo. 2011.
