Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Catholic priest Adam lives in rural Poland, where he works with teenagers otherwise forgotten by their community. He succeeds in declining the advances of a local woman, as his embrace of the priesthood has become a flight from facing the truth of his own sexuality. When he meets the taciturn son of a simple rural family, his self-imposed abstinence becomes a heavy burden.


Outstanding performances! An atmosphere of danger and violence holds the whole film in thrall. --The Hollywood Reporter

Magnetic! --Screen Daily

Customer Reviews

Very well written, acted, and directed.
Paul A. Byrnes
Again, the film is shot beautifully in the changing light of a summer sun, and reaches a heartwarming, if ultimately ambiguous, conclusion.
john francis leonard
In addition to the normal duties of a parish priest, Adam also works with teenage men with extreme problems.
Charles Ashbacher

Format: DVD
I am a big fan of the Film Movement library of foreign and indie movies, and am a subscriber of their DVD-of-the-Month Club. This is the September, 2013 release in that on-going series.

"In The Name Of..." (2013 release from Poland; 102 min.) brings the story of Father Adam, a Catholic priest who has been transferred from a parish in Warsaw to a parish in the country-side of Poland, literally in the middle of nowhere. There he heads a center of troubled teenage boys, who will be sent back into the (presumably much harder) state system if they don't behave. Adam struggles with loneliness, as he takes confession after confession, but he himself has nowhere to turn with his troubles, other than the occasional contact with his faraway sister who lives in Toronto. Adam fends off the advances of a young woman Ewa, telling her that yes he finds her attractive but "I'm already spoken for". Then Adam strikes a bond with one of the troubles teens, a boy named Lukasz. To tell you more of the plot would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: this movie is a complex priesthood/troubled youth drama that addresses a lot of issues, none more so than the loneliness of Father Adam. At one point he is Skype-ing with his sister in Toronto when he is feeling desperate. He asks her "Do you have someone to hug? I need someone I can hug". The movie does a great job walking a thin line between true desperation and sheer overkill. The photography in the movie is outstanding, filming it in a sun-drenched way (sometimes reminding me of magic-realism). The acting is also superb, none more so that the Polish actor in the role of Father Adam.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on April 5, 2014
Format: DVD
Adam is a young Catholic Polish priest that is mysteriously sent from Warsaw to attend to troubled boys in the countryside. The small town emphasizes the loneliness and the absence of privacy in the lives of the residents.

Father Adam’s method is to interact with the teenage boys with positive messages, soccer and volunteer work. All have troubles with families, drugs or sex. Therein lays Father Adams’ problem in that he is struggling with his own sexuality, particularly when admired by a local women that he has to politely turn down for affection.

Some of the boys are real trouble and threaten Father Adam’s mission as a role model. He also witnesses bullying and sexual interaction amongst the boys that is edging him towards an uncomfortable revelation. He befriends a quiet empathetic boy who defends him and also requires personal his attention.

The tension of some tragedies mixed with personal feelings of loneliness and aggression work in a balanced way that continues to surprise from beginning to end. Nicely directed in a non-glossy fashion, this film will surprise, delight and ultimately give you pause on the directions of the characters’ lives.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By J. Martin on April 19, 2014
Format: DVD
This is a very effective, very positive and yet oddly disturbing movie about the fitful coming out of a 40ish gay priest in Poland. His name is Adam, and he looks nothing like a priest except while on duty. He's always known he's gay, but he's serious about his vocation and has stayed closeted in order to keep his vows of celibacy.

He has a special gift for helping troubled teenage boys, which his superiors value greatly. His homosexuality has never led to anything remotely inappropriate with a boy (or with a man, for that matter), but he is periodically transferred in order to keep even rumors from interfering with his very valuable ministry. Most recently he was moved from Warsaw to an isolated rural parish with a small work-home for boys on furlough from reformatories.

This is a complex movie, and trying to summarize its plot would be a disservice. It is not predictable, not typical of gay movies, of priest movies, or of any other sort of movies I can think of. It's not the story of a type of man but of THIS man. So, like any real human being, Adam is more complicated than a normal movie character, and the director does not try to make him easy to understand.

In part because it's NOT predictable, this movie is fascinating to watch, and the end is especially satisfying. The movie is disturbing not because of anything that happens, but because everyone and everything in it looks dirty.

I know that sounds superficial, but sometimes the most superficial things in life are the most distressing. Even after bathing, the characters look grimy, everything indoors is dingy, and outdoors is nothing but dust.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By John D. Cofield TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 29, 2014
Format: DVD
In the Name of is another grittily realistic offering from Film Movement. A Polish film with English subtitles, it is the story of Father Adam, a Catholic priest who is stationed in rural Poland. Among his duties is the counseling and supervision of a group of troubled teen boys who are on remand from the state reform school system. Adam is a young man who came late to the Church and the priesthood, and he relates well to the teens and to the community.

Father Adam himself is a deeply troubled individual, however. He faces innumerable challenges dealing with the teenagers and with his other duties in the community, but those pale compared to his inner struggles. He finds it easy to dismiss a woman who seeks a sexual relationship with him by telling her "I'm taken," but it is far more difficult to deal with his feelings towards the young men with whom he works, especially an enigmatic new arrival named Lukasz.

Father Adam's struggles are sympathetically told with respect for both him, the young woman, and the teens with whom he must deal. The ending is somewhat equivocal, which is appropriate considering the quandaries into which Adam finds himself plunged with no hope of finding answers. In the Name of's troubling story is enhanced by the beautiful photography and superb acting.
