“Jan Komasa's study of faith, vocation, goodness and redemption brings to mind Graham Greene's novel The Power and the Glory. Yet Mateusz Pacewicz's screenplay is based on true events, as it follows 20-year-old Daniel from the brutal reformatory where his Catholic conscience has been pricked by Father Tomasz to an industrial backwater. Here he poses as a newly ordained priest and not only heals the wounds caused by a tragic car crash, but also inspires a surge in church attendance through the impassioned sermons that address the everyday concerns of his flock... Komasa directs with a conviction that also drives the mesmerising Bielenia, whether he's acting as lookout during a cellblock beating, partying hard after his release or trying to remember the rituals he's looked up online before saying his first mass.” - David Parkinson, RadioTimes. “Often moving but also disquieting and even intermittently funny, this drama unfurls a spiritual parable that is uniquely Polish but accessible to all.” - The Guardian (UK)
