| Solidly acted, Well directed Mystery Thriller
If you are deeply religious person, and particularly a devout Christian, this film is sure to offend you.so there is no reason for you to watch it and there are literally tens of thousands of pro-church movies that one can watch in its place. This movie, while not ending up anti-faith, is basically a Murder She Wrote mystery set in a convent that is inhabited by remarkably petty and at times downright insane occupants. The clergy in this one is concerned about a nunnery that has few members, is literally falling apart and may end up getting sold by the church for money, leveled to the ground and replaced by profitable condos. The comments attacking this film and giving it its low rating are made by those, I think, who don't like its subject manner or its rather blasphemous approach and so give it an extremely low rating. The acting in my opinion at least was topnotch with special kudos to the beautiful Susie Abromeit who has to and does carry the film strongly. But it is also an ensemble acting endeavor and each of the players contributes in a major way. Comments by other viewers about the amateurish nature of the acting just don't fly with me (I'm a former professional actor who studies this craft professionally and I'm no genius but I think I can recognize quality efforts when I see them.) It is not a great film by any stretch but is a solid mystery watch for fans of the And Then There Were None Agatha Christie style mystery usually set in an old mansion but in this case, for whatever reason, set in a convent from hell. There was one scene in it that I won't give away but it made me jump straight up in the air. It's not a super violent film but the director builds the tension slowly and then all of a sudden lets you have it for a few seconds. I should add that this is an extraordinary example of what you can make with almost no budget at all!
