El pecado de Adán y Eva AKA The Sin of Adam and Eve (1969) - Miguel Zacarías
Absurd retelling of the story of Adam and Eve, this was the first of several biblical
movies by director Miguel Zacarías that were intended to inspire the faithful but only
inspired laughter instead. This film gained much notoriety due to the abundant nudity of its
stars and was released worldwide.

There is almost no dialogue except for the serpent urging Eve to sin and God’s
commandment to leave Eden. The latter scene is particularly hilarious, where the couple
is chased from the garden by a pair of flaming swords on obvious wires.
