I think what's amazing about this movie is how they criticize fanatism. That's mainly what it's about. How can fanatism can be unstopable, stupid, crazy, and can do really bad things, create caos and destroy what is in the way. What's worst all is done in masses. You just need to feed them with something, in this case religion. Also how shallow and empty can be people's lives that they need a little extra to keep living, to keep hoping, to keep their faith and know they are alive. The problem is when this "faith" get away of their hands and becomes fanatism. It represents the lives, and the boredom of people that live in small towns in that epock. Good movie, not the best i've seen, but not a waist of time either.
