an admirable film. against its director intention
27 October 2013 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

a Romanian Orthodox monastery. a young woman preparing for wows to became nun. a spiritual wedding, few confessions, images of joy. a portrait. and little more. a battle between director intentions and the reality of monastery. a wrong vision about essence of new life of Teodora and the presence of erotic connotation as incorrect manner to present a delicate space, a fundamental choice. so, the film can be important only against its director who desire transform a documentary in tools for its personal convictions , using the world tools/perception for understand a pure sacred mystery. it can be a good film only for a public who is Orthodox in profound sense. and only regret is not the wrong image about a form of miracle but the decision to integrate an extraordinary event in rules machine of profane world. this error is more than a mistake . it can be a failure. or a blasphemy.
