Did You Know?

Goofs

There are two slightly different versions of the Lord's Prayer. The "Catholic version" has some different wording and a different ending than the "Protestant version". In the scene where Fr. Brulein is saying mass, he and the congregation recite the "Protestant version" and not the "Catholic version". See more »

decent but slow
7 November 2009 | by deschreiberSee all my reviews

The premise of the movie was interesting. Will he be able to reach her? Can he stop her? But a ton of the scenes stuck me as filler, with little dramatic import. The subplot of the priest's "temptation" turned out to be, simply, empty. His looking at the magazines had no discernible effect on him. The ex-girlfriend's approaches were easily diverted. He doesn't seem to have been "into temptation" after all. When the girlfriend apologized and talked as if she was not going to bother him any more, I wondered, "So what was all that about then?" Just a little subplot to fill the time. Was he really looking at the prostitute's cleavage or just at her necklace? The ending with the prostitute also seemed a bit of a cheat.

The conversations between the priest and his black parishioner seemed very odd, where the parishioner was playing the role of counsellor to the priest.

Two stars out of five.
