The Gospel According to Harry Synopsis

Released in northern Europe as Ewangelia wedlug Harry'ego, this Polish film is described as "a biblical soap-opera whose action unfolds in the Californian desert."

The Gospel According to Harry Brief Review

From the Polish Cinema Database: "The film is a biblical soap-opera whose action unfolds in the Californian desert. Karen and Wes's marriage is crumbling apart - like a sandcastle. Karen can't even make love to her husband any more - the sand has managed to get everywhere. Harry, a tax collector, is a witness to this marriage falling apart. As a civil servant he hears Wes confession. However he isn't able to help him. The omnipotent eye of television glitters above the desert - that raw allegory of America where neither the white nor the black have it good. If Samuel Beckett and Joan Collins had a romance, then their child would look like this film."

Once difficult to find, the film was released on Region 1 DVD in August, 2008.

Note: IMDb also lists a 1993 film, Desert Lunch, which sounds suspiciously like this same film under another name.
