Father Peter is afraid that universe is indifferent. God no longer intervenes. His wife abandoned him. His son rebels against him. And his mother seldom recognizes him thanks to Alzheimer's. When Peter becomes an obstacle to a large property sale in his parish, the group of colorful, but also vengeful villagers decides to chase him away. Their creative ways made entire superstitious village believe that Peter is the cause of all troubles on the peninsula. Their clash escalates on a funeral of a supposed witch that they turn into surreal mayhem. Not only is Peter discredited as a priest in the end, but his faith in people completely vanishes in the process.
Great movie that shows real Montenegrin local mentality
The story is brilliantly written and every scene is perfect, with great photography and music. Typical Montenegrin local mentality is depicted very well, especially through great dialogues filled with jokes and customs of small by-the-see village inhabitants. First we can see feature such as selfishness, materialism and envy, but in the end it all comes to being there and helping a man in need. The movie keeps your attention and focus from the first to the last moment. Actors are great and I'm glad to see a fine Montenegrin movie after many many years. I hope this debut achievement of young Montenegrin director is only the beginning of his career. Definitely must see movie and worth going to cinema!
