Faith is not only suffering and blood
11 April 2004 | by eckhart2002See all my reviews

Are we allowed to laugh when we talk about faith ? Not since the "Jesus laughs" (Jesus People) have we been allowed to laugh about matters of faith. This movie brings a fresh wind into our all to serious contact with metaphysics. Not only is the main actress a marvelous example of beauty allied to intelligence hitting the right tone in this movie but we have here a very bright rainbow shining down on us regarding the manifold aspects of faith. This magnificent comedy should be shown more often on our screens especially in a time where fundamentalism is coming back with all its followers of murder, hatred and death. "Que la lumière soit" ! Pure delight

P.s.: I am waiting for the DVD version coming out
