In 2002, a Mexican film generated great controversy in Aztec lands and throughout Latin America by addressing a taboo subject within the Catholic religion. It is about The Crime of Father Amaro, which dealt with the love affair of a young father with a woman and which was even censored by the Church itself.
Despite this, the film production garnered several awards due to an unconventional plot and the masterful performances of Ana Claudia Talancón and Gael García Bernal. Both actors achieved stardom after the premiere of the film, although the problems also appeared due to it.
And it is that after 18 years of its launch, the actress revealed that she had some problems with her relatives after this role. According to Talancón, at the beginning they did not want to attend to see the film since they are faithful Catholics, although later they understood that it was part of their job.
“It was quite a bummer, really, with my family too. Many people in my family didn’t even want to go see the movie. At first yes (they were offended), and later they realized that really, well, I am an actress, “he said for the Tu-night program hosted by Omar Chaparro.
However, Ana Claudia Talancón herself revealed that the success of this film was her door to enter the US market.
“With The Crime of Father Amaro I came to the United States. We were nominated for the Golden Globes and the Oscars, and that’s how I got to Los Angeles, “he said.
