Just finished watching this movie and i must say it was perfect
This is a pretty neat film about a man who passes by who needs water as engine coolent so he asks some kind looking Nuns for some water and they ask him to fix the roof for some money he than gets doubed in makeing a Chapell this is how the movie starts. I like the acting on both side, i very well like the scenery it was a fantastic movie about relegion and how their is fate in people and how anyone will help their fello man out. Even tho it is in Black and white some youngsters would not give it another look but the movie takes the pie. Good for all ages heck im 15 and loved the movie.
