A film of ideas; meaty ideas about Catholicism, faith, and the true nature of jealousy, love and hate, that are rarely contemplated in today's cinema.

Read like a long, anguished prayer, but on screen it looks an awful lot like blasphemy.

It's hard to feel anything but disappointment and boredom by the time the picture grinds to a mystical ending.

This is the kind of movie in which even the sex scenes are soulless.
