Time Out says

Kolski's idiosyncratic blend of pantheistic mysticism and bucolic comedy is here applied to an obscure fable about a peasant blessed with mysterious healing powers who abandons his pregnant wife to tour the countryside. The fame attendant upon his miracles and the machinations of a charlatan Christ impersonator turn his head - but a curse put on his family by a crazed vagrant brings him, eventually, to his senses. Certainly Kolski's images are often startlingly eccentric, as are the shifts between 'reality', fantasy and symbolism, but quite what it all means, beyond its warning against the temptations of the flesh, remains a mystery.
