Moral ambiguity
16 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To me this film was about morality: Of the murderous tactics of the mafia and the sexual transgressions of a priest. The priest rails against the mafia while seducing a 13 year old boy. He is shown to have had another boy lover now discarded for a younger, more attractive one. Listening to the priest's recorded voice, the young lover hears: "sanctity and eroticism are the same". Bluring the moral responsibility of the priest, we learn that he was born of unknown parents. All the adult characters are shown to be flawed. Only the boy and his girlfriend, are shown as innocents, wanting only affection and sensual pleasure. In an attempt to discredit the priest, the boy is pressured to betray him by admitting to the relationship. His silence loses him his life and hence is sacred,far more so than the sacred rituals the priest recites to a few bored parishioners. The question remaining is:Is the priest any less guilty than the mafia? There is of course no answer and it is left to the viewer to ponder the events.

The story is developed slowly and in Italian with English subtitles so it is a bit hard to keep the familial relations and events straight. But the major outlines are clear and well worth watching.
