Storyline

Two priests, Pep and Bruno, become fed up with preaching day after day to a congregation that is not present. They have truly hit bottom, and will do anything necessary to bring the community back into the church. After a few failed attempts, Bruno goes on a soul searching mission by himself in the woods. He comes across a false prophet who claims to be a priest, and offers a vial of miraculous holy water. The holy water reveals itself to be a concoction extrapolated from the souls of lunatics, and ultimately causes the main priest to have horrific visions. We are left wondering what happens to the church, as well as the people who have now come seeking a vision induced by the potion of a mad man. Written by Johnny Fulci

Trivia

The Archdiocese of Boston tried to stop the film from happening. In a letter to Roberto Bentivegna, Bishop O'Malley described the script as being "blasphemous", as "not reflecting the teachings of the Catholic doctrine" and sent out a circular letter to the churches within the Archdiocese asking for the boycott of the production. Luckily Father Vincenzo Rosato had a sense of humor and allowed his church to be used. See more »

Cannes screening
27 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this quirky short at the Cannes Film Festival. The director was present and I had the chance to talk to him after the screening.

As a Catholic, it was refreshing to see a film that respected the faith but that raised very pertinent questions. The film looked great and the performances were strong. The tone was consistent and very different. The director explained that it was a fantasy, and I thought about the film again with that in mind. It certainly followed that structure (the "magical forest", the elixir, Tiberius in the woods) but I am wondering if I would have figured that out without him telling me. My only other criticism was that I felt that this would be better off as a feature- but that's hardly a criticism. Overall a wonderful little film.
