Storyline

In an unnamed country in a small village the young local executioner is carrying out the execution of three people on the orders of the outside hard core cleric, Hadji. After the first two are shot, he is told to stop, because Hadji believes that executing the young women will send the young virgin to heaven. Instead Hadji orders the young executioner to marry and deflower the virgin, so she will end up in hell after her execution. This is the start of the executioner's crisis of faith.

A very good movie
13 April 2004 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I cannot accept that this is a dull film. Instead, I found it is an excellent one, even better than Samira Makhmalbaf's "At Five in the Afternoon" and Peter Mullen's "Madeleine Sisters". The filmmaker express the evil of fundamentalism only in a very subtle manner, but when the story developed, the audience would follow the executioner, who was a follower in the film, to question the fundamentalism. And the 12 minutes long take in the opening is wonderful too!
