Great character film, 31 December 2013
Author: Kent Vanhelsing (Ksvampirehunter@gmail.com) from United States

I have been in the war of rescuing and renovating a historic mansion for many years. This film was just too good and obviously spoke right to my heart and pocket book. I absolutely related to Mr Vig having the love and devotion to the monastery and at the same time realizing that he does not have the funds, energy, or time to make a dent in the massive project. The subsequent involvement of the Sisters hearkens back to the wonderful classic, "lillies of the field". The ongoing interplay between the characters is very sensitive and real. If you are getting worn out with the endless Hollywood CGI violence, gore, and movies that addresses the lowest common denominator of intelligence, you will enjoy this human film. If, on the other hand, your cup of tea is "dumb and dumber" or "fast and furious", you will be terribly bored.
