An explorer visits what appears to be the ruins of a gothic cathedral. There seem to be some strange statues, though, whose faces follow him as he makes his way to the end; the sun comes out, and he stops at the edge of a cliff.

Storyline

Is religion the opiate of the people, or something darker? A pilgrim happens on an unfinished cathedral, with Gothic vaults and Gaudiesque echoes, poised on the edge of a cliff. As he walks through, statuary appears, and these figures hold the key to the essence of religion. Do insight and discovery await the pilgrim? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Brilliant animation
17 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This animated film from Poland features some truly outstanding animation. The character animation and the scenery shots in this sci fi tale are brilliant. The story itself is somewhat hard to follow, but as a spectacle of animation it is a terrific film. GRADE: A
