Quotes

Daniel: You know what we're good at? Giving up on people. Pointing the finger at them. To forgive doesn't mean to forget. "Forgive" means "love". To love someone despite their guilt. No matter what the guilt is.

Spiritual Journey
9 February 2020 | by billcr12See all my reviews

Peter is a man with serious character defects who has been released from a juvenile facility. He finds himself at a small town Catholic church where he dons a priest's collar and becomes a beloved charismatic leading his adoring flock. The Polish Peyton Place slowly reveals its' secrets as the good "father" hears confessions from the flock and performs masses with inspiring homily's. As a lapsed Catholic, I found the film very realistic and sentimental. The lead actor is excellent and I would place it just behind "Parasite" as the best foreign language movie of 2019.
