Product Description

Adam is a Catholic priest who discovered his calling as a servant of God at the relatively late age of 21. He now lives in a village in rural Poland where he works with teenagers with behavioral problems who fight and yell abuse. He declines the advances of a young blonde named Ewa, saying he is already spoken for. However, celibacy is not the only reason for his rejection. Adam knows that he desires men and that his embrace of the priesthood has been a flight from his own sexuality. When he meets Lukasz, the strange and taciturn son of a simple rural family, Adam's self-imposed abstinence becomes a heavy burden.

Priest Adam works with problem boys/lads in a Catholic Church programme in rural Poland. He was moved on from a similar parish in Warsaw under a bit of a cloud. He works with Michal who dropped out of the Seminary for love - this love is Ewa who clearly has the hots for our Adam. Meanwhile he tries to do `good' by the boys who are an unruly bunch to say the least. Then a new boy turns up who is nicknamed `Blondie' - he is elf assured, striking and gay and about to upset the established order - after all `you do not confess to the priest but to God'.

Meanwhile another one of the boys who is a bit of an outside and has the nickname `Humpty' seems to need a little more `spiritual guidance' than the other boys. Well the summer heat rises and so do the hormone levels. Adam is also seemingly fighting an alcohol problem; and it is not long before cracks in the fragile set up start to show. The consequences of what takes place will have repercussions for all those involved.

This is a very gripping film throughout and it all unfolds at a rather slow pace, but it is hard to notice. I actually thought at one point that this is like watching a car crash in slow motion - but in a really good way. The scene shot in slow mo with the soundtrack of `Band of Horses' is particularly memorable and will make me listen to the album again. There are issues here that go beyond mere sexuality and as such this is a layered film that has repressed feelings and love at the very core of what it is doing,; I can absolutely recommend - especially for lovers of gay themed films.

In Polish but with large very legible English subtitles.
We are not quite sure about this man. Is he or isn’t he? He is a priest and in charge of a group of teens. These lads are in a sort of half-way house or perhaps on probation. They will be sent back to prison if they misbehave. There are rumors that the priest is gay. There were problems at the parish where he served. We listen to near conversations as they go swimming and at other times. One boy fiercely defends him. There is no doubt about his assistant who fell in love with a woman and abandoned his priestly vocation. The latter tells the Bishop of his suspicions. The priest is removed from his job. Be warned. There are episodes of sexual activity. One boy goes missing and they search the forest for him. There is temptation. Another boy runs away and we wonder where he is going through the rain. The question is finally resolved. This is a slice of life that most people will never experience.

We really enjoyed this film. It hurt a bit to watch the torment of the protagonist. Once again it puts the Catholic church under the spotlight but not so much about abuse but about the demand for celibacy.
