Time Out says

Spiritual torment is written all over this excruciating adaptation of Morris West's bestselling tale of betrayal and redemption, with Mills as the monsignor investigating a dubious case for canonisation, and having a torrid time (quite apart from dying of cancer) as he uncovers evidence of a murky story. Filmed in English, peopled entirely by caricatures, risibly righteous in its attitude to homosexuality, the film rivals The Hiding Place as an example of misplaced religiosity.
