The cast of pros and amateurs provides realistic performances, and co-director Charlone's lensing makes beautiful use of the rough landscape in a movie even the pope would enjoy.

Watch it now, and you'll be surprised how such a little movie can cut so deeply to the bone.

The Pope's Toilet cloaks religious critique in the scrappy tempo of irremediable poverty and irrepressible enterprise.

The Pope's Toilet entertains, even while it illustrates how the impoverished can adjust their religious ideals out of desperation.

The movie isn't as bad as I feared, but I can't give it much of an endorsement, either.

The Pope's Toilet excels most in its expression of a particular time and place, which Charlone films with the kind of physical intensity and realism associated with recent Argentine cinema.
