A Must See
14 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. Very true to the book. Alec Guiness and Leo McKern are magic together. I will never forget the Monsignor's explanation of the Holy Trinity and the "sin" he committed. Still have trouble believing two elderly men could drink so much and get around, but that's Spain for you. A little odd how it was set in Spain but everyone was so blatantly British. A gentle, warm-hearted movie. If you enjoy the works of Graham Greene you have to see this.

NOTE for North Americans: I had trouble getting a copy and had to order from England then get past the whole DVD region restrictions nonsense, but finally was able to watch it.
