A true story of a poor working girl who in 1830 kills her untrue lover and looses her own life for it. María Ellingsen in the title role won best actress price for Agnes at Schermi d’Amore film festival in Verona Italy.
“María gets the prize for her elegant, honest, thoughtful and precise acting. The film is a reminder of a period when powerful men were easily able to crush and even eliminate a woman who tried to stand up for herself, and the tragedy of Agnes is that she refuses to accept her fate without a struggle. Ellingsen gives an effective performance as the feisty, hedonistic and ultimately doomed heroine.” VARIETY
