Storyline

Monty is a bodybuilder. His gym is the very heart of his existence. He is aggressively male, outrageously narcissistic and a bigot. Sharing this strange world is Monty's cerebral and emotionally wounded younger brother, Bertin. One stormy day, the brothers' bizarre but settled lives are suddenly disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Lilith, a Catholic nun collecting contributions for an unusual cause. Lilith's arrival is the catalyst required to generate a momentous change in Bertin's relationship with his brother, a change that results in the astonishing and gruesome downfall of the vainglorious Monty.

Trivia

The film took over 14 years to complete due to the deaths of the original producer and the lead actor during the production process. The film started shooting in 1994 and was finally completed in 2008. It was Trevor Goddard's first starring role when the film began. In a twist of fate, it was also his last acting role as he died weeks after finishing his final scene in the film in 2003. Due to financial restraints, the remainder of the production and post-production process took a further 5 years to complete. See more »

What did I just watch?!
26 April 2019 | by shine67See all my reviews

I like odd movies, unique movies, movies that try to tell stories in new ways. That part of me loved this movie. But the other part of me wants to know what I just did with the past 90 minutes of my life.

I'm not sure if the film was trying to say something deep or just be campy. The dialogue was silly, but the actors delivered their lines with full dedication. Trevor Goddard was perfect for his role. He's always been fun when I've seen him in different guest spots, and he brought all that personality to this part. He's a great physical actor, too, really using his space well. Rudi Davis, as his brother, held his own, and I thought they played off of each other really well. I've never seen him before, but he was a joy to watch.

But still, in the end, maybe the film was just trying a little too hard. Or maybe not hard enough. It's really a tough call because I was entertained for sure, but I'm not sure who I would ever recommend this movie to. Please watch it if you have time to waste, if you enjoy something different, if you are not easily offended and if you're stoned. I wasn't, but I think it might have been a lot more fun if I was. You just need to let yourself get lost in it.
