Whatever they were trying for, I didn't get it. It was a dark and dreary night/day that lasted forever.

Religion is the root of all evil. Watching films like this just makes me even more glad that i dont believe in god. Good film set in ireland, about an over eager priest. Messed up if you ask me..

Started strongly but started to unravel quickly, which was a shame as religious fervour, in what looked like 50's Northern Ireland could have made for a very strong

Matthew MacFadyen goes nuts as an overzealous Catholic priest trying to enforce his rule on a backward Irish village.
