I have to disagree with that, Gilly. To me, that Easter morning sermon is the highlight of the movie.....I thought it was beautiful! The transformation of the young priest from someone who was trying to be "perfect church" into someone who knew it was better to be "warm human" was lovely..... I don't know if it could have played as well in the book. But it was the whole point of the story.

I think I've become really fascinated with Reynaud,after reading the book and I suppose that's why I'm critical of the film priest..That was a lovely part of the film, doubt about it :cool:
Life is beautiful.

I have faith in you.

I think I enjoyed both of them in seperate ways, but I guess overall I still preferred the film version.
