Storyline

Monty is a bodybuilder. His gym is the very heart of his existence. He is aggressively male, outrageously narcissistic and a bigot. Sharing this strange world is Monty's cerebral and emotionally wounded younger brother, Bertin. One stormy day, the brothers' bizarre but settled lives are suddenly disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Lilith, a Catholic nun collecting contributions for an unusual cause. Lilith's arrival is the catalyst required to generate a momentous change in Bertin's relationship with his brother, a change that results in the astonishing and gruesome downfall of the vainglorious Monty.

Trivia

The film took over 14 years to complete due to the deaths of the original producer and the lead actor during the production process. The film started shooting in 1994 and was finally completed in 2008. It was Trevor Goddard's first starring role when the film began. In a twist of fate, it was also his last acting role as he died weeks after finishing his final scene in the film in 2003. Due to financial restraints, the remainder of the production and post-production process took a further 5 years to complete. See more »

Goofs

i cannot see that anyone with a trained eye has seen this film
20 April 2012 | by (houston) – See all my reviews

this film is surreal; nothing is what it appears to be, and i see no indication in IMDb that anyone here has studied film, as NO ONE has used the word surreal, or off-kilter, or used terms like symbolic, or metaphorical.

i do not mean to say that one must formally study film to appreciate it; but certainly even a casual review might mention the religious themes, rather that simply saying a nun drops by. and by what criteria is this a comedy?

i am sad that everyone here missed the film, especially because it was Trevor Goddard's swan song; sudden death at forty is tragic, no matter who you are. (my condolences to all who are directly affected.)
