    Drama

    On his way from Heaven to Hell, Lucifer passes through the earthly paradise of Mexico, where elderly Lupita and her granddaughter Maria live. Lupita's brother Emanuel pretends he's paralyzed so he can drink and gamble while the two women tend to the sheep. Lucifer senses an opportunity and plays the miraculous healer. He forces Emanuel to walk again, seduces Maria and makes Lupita lose her faith. He didn't bring bad luck, he only illuminated the line between good and evil, where it didn't exist before.

    This unclassifiable work has some moments of real beauty, and others of visionary delight.

    Lee Marshall, Screen Daily

    Lucifer is a captivating reimagination of the biblical myth and a mesmerizing allegory on the human condition in a challenging format.
