Wonderful interesting movie about the testing of faith.
An interesting movie about testing of faith and how people react to things when fundamental bits of their faith are questioned. It is about a man at a monestary who turns into a woman and becomes pregnant and how all the other monks react to the change. Beautifully executed and beautifully filmed, I was really impressed with this movie.
