This is a fascinating, though very unusual, story, beautifully read by Colin Firth. Not everyone's cup of tea, with serious questions about love, hate, god, life and death. Thought provoking.
Graham Greene is a master at this sort of tale, told from the thoughts of the protagonist, and Firth made it all seem very real. My wife loved it, too.
Some, but not all - probably not my Catholic friends, and certainly not to the ones who read popular novels and such.
He reads it perfectly, separating the characters without to much of a voice change; reads with appropriate emotion without being histrionic. Very believable.
Tough film to make, and certainly wouldn't be commercial. Can't say, really.
