Staid religious dogma
28 January 2018 | by oldvicarSee all my reviews

It is difficult to articulate the inaccuracy of the 'Storyline' (or the one posted review at the time of writing) without spelling out too much of the plot or otherwise spoiling the experience of watching this for those who may not appreciate specifics. The exisiting reviewer who I assume has an interest in this piece draws parallels with 12 Angry Men (in their dreams) and generally gives the impression of a worthwhile dialogue about the nature of lust and morality. It is nothing of the kind, merely a convening of some ecclesiastic court or other that predermines how it is to hush up the case of a nun who abuses her position as carer. Most of the dialogue relates either to the perverseness of the religious authorities in protecting their own inetersts or a rather narrow and tetchy exchange between the nun (who, clearly having no respect for her vocation, has committed abuse) and one of the members of the gathering. If you do sit through this then consider the nun's performance and ask yourself how in any way that women could have been in that institution and held those views. Her dialogue and certainly the way it was acted gave no credibility to anything other than an actress in a costume. The dialogue is not illuminating, it is as narrow as anything could be expected that involves religiosity and I regret sitting through it in the hope it would improve or deliver something of meaning. The acting was that of a one act stage play in a small theatre but despite the content was well produced which is worth a few stars. But the script was thin, thin and unimpressive.
