El crimen del Padre Amaro (The Crime of Father Amaro) is a 2002 Mexican/Spanish film directed by Carlos Carrera. It is loosely based on the novel O Crime do Padre Amaro (1875) by 19th-century Portuguese writer José Maria Eça de Queiroz.
When it was first released, El Crimen del Padre Amaro was very controversial; Roman Catholic groups in Mexico tried to stop the film from being screened. They failed, and the film became the biggest box office draw ever in the country, beating previous record holder, Sexo, pudor y lágrimas (1999).
The film starred Sancho Gracia, Aishwarya Rai and Gael García Bernal and premiered on 16 August 2002 in Mexico City.
