Three lives in search of redemption intersect in the streets of Lima: undercover cop Gamarra's desperate attempts to save his wife from a terminal illness gets him into trouble; bus driver Felix wants to be accepted into a religious sect after his involvement in a tragic traffic accident; and imperiled soccer club leader Narciso tries to secure his younger brother's release from prison. El Evangelio de la Carne does for Lima what Amores Perros did for Mexico City: to present a complex portrait of a socially and financially precarious world.
Directed by Eduardo Mendoza de Echave, Peru, 2013, 110 min. In Spanish with English subtitles.
