Docu's case-pleading is duly high-minded and effective. But the sense of emotional identification that might have really socked the point across is lacking.

As with so many of the low-budget, video-shot documentaries currently managing to achieve theatrical release, too often Saints and Sinners has the feel of a home movie of greater interest to its participants than to an audience.

It is, simply, a slice of life, one that transcends questions of right or wrong, moral or immoral.

For an outside observer, Saints and Sinners doesn't make particularly compelling viewing, but Ms. Honor has given her subjects an excellent present on their big day: the ultimate wedding video.

A quietly persuasive and very timely documentary.

You may feel like you've seen this story before, but not for a very long time, and never so gorgeously filmed.

March 25, 2005 Full Review Source: Oregonian

A sort of petulant familial totalitarianism is invoked, which in its hectoring demand for tolerance rather amounts to the kind of intolerance the Catholic Church itself is so often accused of.

Would be as tedious as a home movie if the couple, Edward DeBonis and Vincent Maniscalco, weren't gay men and their nuptials not colored by the clash between their personal faith and their rejection by the mainstream church.

Sociologically rich, if not very memorable in the personalities it depicts.

It's a warm, gentle and humorous film, that does justice to the touchy subject it covers.

One of the most extraordinary and courageous love stories ever captured on camera.
