Movie Info

Motivated by desire for demographic renewal, Don Fabijan, a young priest on a Dalmatian island starts secretly puncturing all the packaged condoms before they are sold. He is soon joined by the local god-fearing newsstand salesman and the mad pharmacist, and they practically abolish all contraception on the island. However, after initial success, numerous weddings and new births, things become complicated. Finally, the bishop arrives to the island and the situation goes out of control. (C) Adopt Films

Critic Reviews for The Priest's Children

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

This maintains a bright, cartoonish tone no matter how outlandish or gruesome the story gets, with the growing disparity between form and content providing some of the better laughs.

It's tightly plotted and contains some smart narrative shifts, but the tonal high-wire act is ultimately too ambitious for Croatian director Vinko Brean to pull off.

I have to tip my hat to Bresan, because I was ready to hate this film (unintended pregnancy-what a funny joke!), but he's an expert judge of tone, and I ended up enjoying this sharp satire.
