The name of the festival in the town was "The Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows". The festivity is a real life religious event. Wikipedia states "The feast of the Our Lady of Sorrows was originated by a provincial synod of Cologne in 1413 as a response to the iconoclast Hussites. It was designated for the Friday after the third Sunday after Easter. It had the title: Commemoratio angustiae et doloris B. Mariae V.. Before the 16th century, the feast was celebrated only in parts of northern Europe". See more »

I just saw this film again after not seeing it for over a decade. For all you who are wondering... is it good? is it bad? I have this to say. Excellent cast. Excellent castING. One of Demi Moore's best (yet small) roles (I'm not a big fan of hers.) Great script (Mamet). Great score. High quality filmmaking. They don't make them like this anymore, really. If you don't agree that its a very clever, dry-witted film, then, oh well. That's what makes the world go round. 9/10.
