Stefan Haupt's 'biography' of Barcelona's Sagrada Familia is handsome yet bland.

Directed by Switzerland's Stefan Haupt in a deliberate, unforced manner, "Sagrada: The Mystery of Creation" takes a satisfying three-pronged approach to this unique structure: visual, historical and reportorial.

Zurich-born Stefan Haupt, however, interrupts his rapturous tour of this basilica with lackluster interviews.

Employing bursts of Bach and English-language narration, this lulling, informative documentary never fully grapples with its topic's complexity.

The photography is impressive as well, Haupt's camera moving gracefully through the interior of the basilica and ascending to its spectacular heights.

It would be hard to make the Sagrada Familia look prosaic, but Mystery of Creation finds particularly cinematic angles for some truly dramatic visual compositions.
