IN THE NAME OF THE SON (Au Nom Du Fils)
2013, Intramovies, 80 min., Dir : Vincent Lannoo
Life is divine for devout Elisabeth (Astrid Whettnall), mother of two and host of the “Christian Hope Radio” show – until family tragedy brings a pedophile priest into her life. Faced with the Church’s dissembling about the problem, she takes matters – and guns – into her own hands on a violent crusade. The fifth feature from director Vincent Lannoo (VAMPIRES), this action-packed black comedy gleefully lobs grenades at religious hypocrisy without reducing believers to caricatures.
In French with English subtitles.
