A Sensible Obsession is a piece of Christian propaganda where a man on his death bed reminisces over the love of his life, a once prostitute who becomes a better woman through his all powerful love. The film wouldn't be all that bad if the acting was up to par, the writing tightened so that the wordiness wouldn't seem so obvious, and direction livened up a little.
As it is now, one can feel the fundamentalist fingers behind Mr. Jiha's efforts as he controls everything in this film from the cinematography to the score (one wonders if he had a hand in the craft services as well) without upsetting nary a conservative soul.
One wishes he had the nerve and make the film a comedy of manners ala Shallow Hal where the crudeness of one's person beliefs would give way to sweet, secular conclusion.
