A simple, yet powerful indictment of the state of religion in the 20th century.
16 February 2000 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

I loved the film and agree with its accusations of the Christian religion. It raises the question of what essential values remain when we see our churches operating like businesses. One of the things I liked most about this picture is how simple the story is; yet its message is profound and thought provoking.
