Our Lady of the Assassins

Our Lady of the Assassins

A Feature film by Barbet Schroeder

Produced by Les Films du Losange

Release in France : 20/09/2000

    Synopsis

    After a thirty-year absence, the writer Fernando Vallejo returns to Medellin, Colombia, where he grew up.
    Little remains of the place he left behind: his parents are dead, part of the city torn down and the drug lords of the “Medellin Cartel” generate terror with their gangs of killers. In a brothel for male prostitutes, he meets 16-year-old Alexis.
    From a poverty-stricken background, Alexis is just another of these hired killers who eventually wind up dead, victims of other no-future killer kids. He already has several murders on his conscience.
