“This film is extraordinary for the themes it explores — sometimes with delicious humor — beyond the obvious. It's one thing to see a man struggle to find himself, another for a film to carry the fight to a luminous moment that brings that struggle into the larger world where differing visions of truths contend.”
   Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle

  1. :

    Every scene has meaning, with plot and sub plot intermingling to keep the audience glued to the screen. Linus Roache gives a superb portrayal of a man, plagued by guilt borne out of unrealistic societal expectation of modern day priests. Faced with the constraints and traditionalism of the Catholic church, he crumbles under his own desires and self-loathing. The dilemmas facing modern day priesthood are explored without patronising any of the characters involved. This is a must see film.
