A powerful and thought provoking short film on the role of the Church since Christ.
30 August 2007 | by DolomedeSee all my reviews

Dominating this film is a superb Derek Jacobi as the Cardinal Inquisitor.

Although virtually a monologue by Jacobi for long sections, there are fine cameo supporting roles from Alan Armstrong; a silent Stephen Billington and a mobile faced, equally mute, John Dallimore.

Based on a section from Dostoyevski's "Brother's Karazamov", the film discusses the reaction of the Spanish Catholic Church in 1680 to the possibility of a prisoner being Christ in his second coming.

A thought provoking, well filmed and intellectual piece, almost theatrical in presentation, with an interesting twist at the end.

Many lively hours of discussion ensued in our household.
