Storyline

In the near future, the Catholic church has joined with other western religions in an ecumenical movement that has washed out much of the original message of the religion. A group of Irish monks have begun saying the mass again in Latin and have begun to have an international following. Martin Sheen is sent from Rome to bring them to task and they must confront what is truly essential in their worship and what is not. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Antique but amazing
22 December 2004 | by boylefilmsSee all my reviews

This is a really good film as far as subject matter goes. It's a product of it's times dealing with the turmoil in the Church during the Vatican II period. The film is thought provoking, yet simple enough, not going into too many complexities of dogma and so forth. How ever, the quality of the film, because it's old, is not as good as it should be, maybe it's just the DVD version i have (Legacy) but as far a quality of the film itself (like colour, sharpness, static etc... not the filming) i was disappointed, however that being said, it's is a very good movie, and definitely a should see if your into religion, and so forth. I rate the movie itself a good 7.5 - 8ish, but quality is like 3 - 4ish (don't let that discourage you)
