CGiii Comment

The main story gets a little lost...which is a shame.

No [real] need for the brother's storyline...but, the invasion of the confession should have been played out more. It's a truly chilling scene.

Religion, tradition and sexuality will always be cause for concern...with more focus, this little film had the potential to scream out a rather important message!
