God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)
Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

The film begins with Brother Lorenzo played by Javier Bardem defends Francisco Goya’s (Stellan Skarsgard) artwork from having key Church members try to imprison him, which he did successfully. When the Church people saw Ines (Natalie Portman) refuse to eat pork at a meal gathering, the church people arrested, interrogated, and tortured her to confess her allegiance to her Jewish beliefs.
You had Jose Luis Gomez's awesome performance as Ines father, Tomas, a rich merchant in a great scene with Javier Bardem. In a meal gathing with Goya and Lorenzo who was invited by Tomas. Tomas asked Lorenzo about his daughter status, in which he responded by saying that she confessed about her Jewish faithfulness. Tomas disliked very much what Lorenzo told him about her daughter being tortured to tell the truth. Brother Lorenzo told Tomas if you believe in God you’d have strength to overcome anything. Tomas ordered his men to stand by the door and not let Lorenzo leave. Goya was let go. Lorenzo was lifted as he was tied with a rope around his arms and was given a paper to sign in which said that, he’s a monkey. After he screamed in pain and discomfort, we found Lorenzo signing the paper as if he had just given up.
The film directed by Milos Forman goes into a few directions that I thought weren’t necessary for instead, Natalie Portman having a daughter in prison. Which we find out during the Spanish War that her daughter resembled herself but a younger version played by Portman. Overall, I must say, that the film kept me alert at all times and it’s worth checking out.
