There’s a new video out there that highlights the best parts of the movie in a 10 minute time segment. It’s hard not to sympathize with the monks who don’t want to change the old ways. Of course this is a movie but I think the author of the novel Brian Moore was on top of the subject and did an excellent job of portraying both sides, probably better than any real exchange between people could. I think it is an accurate portrayal of how people feel about the changes to the mass.
Anyhow, if you haven’t seen it it is a must see. Especially if you are Irish.
