| Very thought-provoking.
To the person who reviewed this film, and called it blasphemous; Grow. Up.

To call this film blasphemous is simply not true. At times people must put their foot down, and call out the unneeded changes in the church, and I respect this film completely for standing up and doing so.

A priest is sent from Rome to a small Irish monastery who refuses to conform to a fourth Vatican Council, this one proclaiming that parishes need no longer see Christ as present in the sacrament.

It paints a vivid picture of the dangers of change, and presents some good arguments as well.

As a film, it works OK. It's not very exciting or gripping, but there is a decent amount of 'conflict' between old and new, and as said before, this is a film which finally stands up and asks 'When do these changes go too far'?

It's not a film to re-watch again and again, but it's at least interesting.

7/10.
