- Synopsis / Plot
- In this stirring drama from Colombian director Andi Baiz passion, violence, and secrets collide as three people put their dreams and fears to the test. Provocative and enigmatic, Satanás tells a trio of interwoven stories that illustrate the interconnectedness of our world and the ripple effects that one person’s actions can have on another. A beautiful hustler who longs for a better life cons rich men out of their money. A priest in love and in lust with his housekeeper is tormented by a member of his parish whose secrets he bears. A teacher, embittered with life and circumstance, longs to break free of the tedium of his existence with one of his students. But can they handle the pressure when tempted by a taste of their deepest desires? Their actions, as they discover, have resounding consequences. This film is a pungent slice of life, but its aftertaste lingers as food for thought. Powerful and graphic from start to finish, Satanás is a riveting study of cause and effect that tackles the themes of love, sex, money, power, and revenge. Above all, the film offers insight into the destructive outward manifestations of inner conflict and the duality of man, in whom good and evil form part of the same whole.
