CGiii Comment

It's difficult to believe - in these enlightened days - that there are those who still declare that the Old Testament is a factual text...well, believe it or not...these befuddled fools still exist...these merchants of misery are a danger to themselves and - more importantly - others.

Thiago Kistenmacker's film is testament to this abhorrent fact...with some truly striking visuals, he gets his message across - extremely loud and agonisingly clear.

There are a few shaky moments and the narrative could have been a little tighter...but, the editing deserves particular mention...precise, professional and, in one place, inspired.

By taking a few more risks, Kistenmacker is a film-maker with a future...

Definitely a nascent talent...
