It's a droll, tongue-in-cheek exchange in a film that's well aware of its own unconventional appeal to high-minded cinephiles.

The real star is director Eugene Green's quirky style: enigmatic dialogue, lengthy tracks and pans, actors speaking directly to the camera, shots of feet set against the cobblestone streets and picture-postcard-perfect vistas of the city.

Mr. Green is fascinated by the possibility that the collision of eros and religion suggested by his literary source might have some resonance in the present, and he explores it in a way that is both cerebral and sensual.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

The result is like nothing else playing, which makes it the best movie in town almost by default.
