Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for strong violence, language, sexuality and drug content
La virgen de los sicarios is one of the greatest movies of the last years.This is absolutely not a gay movie, this is not the subjet. I’m sure that this film will be a cult movie in ten years. This is the best movie of Barbet Schroeder, one of the most interesting directors of our time. It is a black diamond, unique, terrible and desesperate.
