Review

A Chilean drama on four suspicious Catholic priests who share a house in a small beach town. When the fifth priest Lazcano arrives, the purpose of the house is disclosed. When the priests pry into Lazcano’s past acts of pedophile, the filthy mood is intertwined with a secretive incident of the village. The film uses bold allegory on the church or religion disgraced by scandals. Scandals are exposed under the name of holiness, revealing the raw nature of man and the mystery of murder. Larrain, who is known for his trilogy on the impacts of Chilean dictator Pinochet, creates his original style by combining the moods of mystery, comedy, and noir. Strictly-controlled humor creates strong psychological effects through narration. The style of the film creates tension which is about to explode. The widescreen shooting that uses digital video and wide angle lens makes unique atmosphere. (JANG Byungwon)
