Who Never Lived . . .

Michall Zebrowski stars as a hip young priest who runs afoul of his superiors by ministering to teenage junkies and gets reassigned to Rome. Before departing he learns he's HIV positive, and the ensuing crisis of faith sends him on an odyssey of self-discovery, from self-imposed exile in a rural monastery to a fateful encounter on a country road. Freighted with heavy-duty biblical allusions (and some embarrassingly cheery musical interludes), this religious drama by Andrzej Seweryn seems ready-made for church discussion groups, though it's saved from terminal earnestness by nuanced performances from the ensemble cast. In Polish with subtitles. 98 min.
