Brilliant portrayal of a too-good-to-be-true Catholic priest. If 40% of Catholic priests were as humane as this portrayal the Catholic church would be in much better shape. I just loved this depiction because I do know some very decent Catholic priests — even though, as most of you know, I am not Catholic.
We watched this great movie this past week. I had recorded it, on DirecTV, as is my wont. I think it was part of a free, preview movie weekend — I think it was CineMax. At any given time we have in excess of 100 HD movies on our DVR!
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this movie. The title was intriguing. It blew us away. WOW. WOW. WOW.
Yes, it was funny and had some GREAT lines — my favorite, given my known distaste for most thing German was: “Why go to Germany? It’s the only place in the world where humor is forbidden”. But it made you think. It had a subtext to do with God and religion. I loved this line, though, I, of course, know better: “I believe in a God with a sense of humor. I would find it absolutely intolerable not to be to able blame someone for all this.”
If you haven’t seen it watch it. I assume it is readily available and I see that you can even download it from imdb.com, albeit for a fee.
It was sexy too — which I did not expect. According to imdb they goofed on the bras. That alone should make you smile.
The only thing I did not care for much was an unnecessary and uncalled for subtext to do with ‘conversion’. Came across as propaganda. C’est la vie. Made the Catholic church look good — which, these days, takes some doing.
Here is the 1990 Mark O’Brien article upon which this movie is based. I thought some of you might be interested.
