Don't Tempt Me
Source: Catholic News Service
Curious satire in which a nightclub singer (Victoria Abril) from heaven and a waitress (Penelope Cruz) from hell are dispatched to Earth by their respective bosses (Fanny Ardant and Gael Garcia Bernal) to battle for the soul of a boxer (Demian Bichir) who is suffering from brain damage. Director Agustin Diaz Yanes creatively portrays heaven as 1930s Paris and hell as a backstabbing corporation, but the film cannot maintain its quirky tone while muddling through the sometimes thought-provoking but often banal ideas about God and life after death. Subtitles. An implied sexual encounter and several sexual references, some harsh violence, much rough language and some profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
