Mostly a gentle comedy
3 June 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Yes, Beat T does make some gentle comedies. This one pokes fairly gentle fun at small religious cults, although Beat does live up to his name, and physically punish some of the characters when they stray from the script. I only rated this film as Five, as it is rather too slow for my liking, and perhaps I think cults need the boot sunk in more firmly. However, if you enjoyed Beat's A SCENE BY THE SEA, you'll probably find this one at least okay.
