I watched the film last night and enjoyed it a great deal. Thanks to Fr Ray for pointing it out. In the film, I was taken by the lady who shares the room with the main character. She steps in when others fall by the wayside and then gets sidelined several times. All the characters were engaging and as with all French films much was left unsaid and much was left for you to observe. I like that a lot. Those of a sensitive liturgical disposition will have to look away at various point and although the subtitles got the Catholic bits right for the most part, it was a bit weird they couldn't get Benediction right. Not on iPlayer much longer, so get over there. It was on BBC4.
