Storyline

Michael is a U.S. journalist who works for a Brazilian newspaper. One day he is put in charge of interviewing Father Louis Stephen, a famed catholic missionary who helps the needy in the jungles of Brazil. Yet he has one problem: the Father has rarely ever given an interview. However, Michael decides that he will be the first to have interviewed the Father personally, and goes on a journey to the center of Brazil, in search of the priest. Michael will soon know how hard it can be to get an interview, and that the Father's apparent media-shyness has deeper implications than he thought.. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Julia: It seems... that the Brazilian Tribune will be publishing a denounce through Father Stephen Louis.
Sen. Emilio Mattar: Father Stephen Louis... He won't talk.
Julia: Well, in any case, I think you should vote following your conscience.
Sen. Emilio Mattar: My conscience? A politician can't afford to such luxury, dear. Only priests can afford to bear a conscience. And only politicians can pay for their events.

Good start, mediocre end
30 March 2001 | by rcltasmanSee all my reviews

The movie starts very interesting, as a kind of adventure-thriller with a journalist who is ready to give anything just to get to talk with a Father Stephen. However, once he finds the Father, it seems as if the director didn't know what to add next to the movie, and thereby changes the story of the movie so many times that in the poorly composed end you just don't know anymore what the movie was really about.

Added to this, some of the people who acted in the movie did their part so bad that it just leaves a lot to wish for.

This movie is maybe just a victim of a low-budget production, but I am sure that much more could have been done with much less, and the movie would have been better than this.
