Ratings & Reviews

  • Co-writer/ director Malgorzata Szumowska, improving upon 2011's Elles, downplays the conflicts in a scenario apparently ripe for torrid melodrama, allowing the story and characters to reveal themselves at their own pace. show more

  • This Polish "gay priest tempted" drama is almost as confused about the moral quandaries of its characters as they are. show more

  • The second half is therefore much more interesting than the first; even so, the whole movie suffers from a lack of narrative momentum and a surfeit of wordless shots of men exchanging deep, meaningful glances. show more
