Perfect Obedience Synopsis
Based on true events, the film set in 1960s Mexico and follows the impressionable 13-year-old Julian as he enters a seminary. A seminary whose code of conduct is the complete unquestioning obedience to authority. The boy soon becomes the target of desire for the seminary’s charismatic head who takes the boy under his wings. But instead of religious training, Julian soon realizes he must obey the older priest’s every command.
Perfect Obedience stars Juan Manuel Bernal, Sebastian Aguirre, Juan Ignacio Aranda, Alejandro de Hoyos, and Luis Ernesto Franco. First-time filmmaker Luis Urquiza directs the film, which boasts an oddly pop 1960s style and a memorable soundtrack.
