Absurd and annoying
29 April 2003 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

One of the most annoying movies I have ever seen. The first half looks like it could develop into a good psychological thriller of frightening atmosphere. But the following changes are just full of clichés - the fanatic priest, the bigoted community, the colour red, abuse and violation of the women through the priest (and the other men looking away) as the dominating motive. But last and least cause of anger is the final chase: Every turn is a stereotype insult of the spectators. Maybe that's a cliché by myself - but the movie looks to me like a female imagination of so-called male obsessions. The first movie I voted 1 of 10.
