Do You Recognize this Church?

As I was wandering around the neighborhood of Colonia del Valle, I came upon this impressive, modern church.

It is called "El Templo del Purísimo Corazón de María" (Church of the Purest Heart of Mary).  It is built of concrete, and it was completed in 1953.

I was told that it was featured in the movie "Romeo and Juliet" (the modernized version that starred Leonardo DiCaprio).  I never saw the movie.  Do any of you recognize it?
