The best part of this film is Letícia Spiller performance, a 29-year-old actress who have shown on Brazilian TV, cinema and theatres she is really talented and beautiful. In this movie she plays Jacobina, a girl who says she's chosen by Jesus Christ to be a preacher and to create her own religion. In a short time she's got a great number of people following her and listening to what she has to say.

The movie itself is far from being wonderful (I personally think the story would be better told if the film was longer) but it is still good enough to please you.

My Rate 7/10
