Adam is a Catholic priest who discovered his calling as a servant of God at the relatively late age of 21. He now lives in a village in rural Poland where he works with teenagers with behavioral problems who fight and yell abuse. He declines the advances of a young blonde named Ewa, saying he is already spoken for. However, celibacy is not the only reason for his rejection. Adam knows that he desires men and that his embrace of the priesthood has been a flight from his own sexuality. When he meets Lukasz, the strange and taciturn son of a simple rural family, Adam's self-imposed abstinence becomes a heavy burden

An honest look at the life of a man who joins the priesthood not for vocation but because he is deeply in the closet. The movie is surprisingly restrained, and the ending is a bit puzzling to say the least. Highly recommended to those who enjoy plot-centered films.

A Polish priest, who has developed a camp for wayward young men, is approached by a bored married woman who seeks a relationship with him. He rejects her advances, but is it because he is strong at rejecting sexual attraction? A lot of adult subject matter here and not all of the questions are answered, but it about time that films started the conversation about complex adult matters.

the best movie on the subject. Restrained in depicting possible explicit sex scenes, the movie focused on the tension that it has with established religion to great effect!
