Audience Reviews for Under the Sun of Satan (Sous le soleil de Satan) (Under Satan's Sun)

Under the Satan' sun was a movie, that whatever I did I couldn't relate to this movie. There was too much dialogue which was so intense that I could not understand anything about the characters.Should you be religious to understand this movie?To believe in God's miracles to revive the boy,cause the priest asked for it? And if you don't believe, watching this was more torture?? Did it make any sense?I watched till the end, cause it was only one and a half hour long and for curiosity.The movie was well played and act,but not my type of movie at all.
