Critic Reviews for The Chaplain

All Critics (3) | Fresh (3)

  • Probably the most interesting topic comes from the contradiction deriving from the teachings of Christianity and the concept of death penalty, which is the element that makes Saeki question his religion and the audience the necessity of the punishment.

  • ...a reserved yet powerful chamber drama.

  • While cinematographer Tatsuya Yamada endeavors to keep things interesting, there's no getting past the austerity of the setting, but this becomes a source of the film's power.
