Corpus Christi 2020 / A priest cons his way into taking over a parish

9.0
S
Staff

This outstanding Polish movie is about an ex-convict who goes through a transformation in jail and decides he wants to become a priest. Not being able to at first because of his criminal record, he cons his way into taking over a parish.

Corpus Christi is a portrayal of a troubled religious community (a recent accident took the lives of many people in the parish), and perhaps even a reflection of modern-day conservative Poland. But in its essence, and especially due to a breathtaking central performance, it’s an examination of the life of a priest beyond the confines priesthood. It’s at the same time refreshing, seeing a new way of preaching, and thrilling, waiting for the priest to be exposed.
