Faith ends where it began, abjectly, and without the same newfound note of ambivalent self-awareness that nonetheless survives the thwarted romantic fantasies of mother and daughter alike in Love and Hope.

These scenes enrich the depiction of the central character and save her from becoming a religious freak stereotype, while allowing Seidl to display his mastery of improvisation. One such scene includes Anna Maria visiting the cluttered apartment of an aging bachelor… While the scene provides a brilliant moment of subtle comic relief, the oddball’s faltering delivery of the Lord’s Prayer… presents a delicate and deeply humanist depiction of the moral questions at hand.
