A small town is one day visited by a priest who is there on a secret mission. He is a member of the Inquisition sent to investigate the activities of a local miller. The miller and his son are the descendants of an old family whose ancestral home burned down a century ago, but was rebuilt from scratch. The miller inherited much of his knowledge about the land, water, and a building's stability from generations of family experience. His reputation for finding water and predicting when a structure might collapse have come to the attention of the Inquisition -surely he must be in league with the Devil.

But it just had a lame ending like the rest of the movie. I think I can guess what it's about though, they never really answer that either and that just annoys me.

It is such a regular romantic comedy and such an incredibly lazy sequel that is basically a scene by scene rehash of the original, but done in a very mediocre and sometimes even annoying manner.

Is it a bridge between the ordinary folk and the governing elite, or is it a barrier to our understanding of what our governments are doing in our name? Does the liberal press exist to legitimate the prevailing conservative press? Bad things are happening everywhere and we do nothing and want to do nothing. I'll get riled about it while I watch a doc/read an article, then forget about it when i see a pretty frock that i want. Chomsky is a great speaker - calm, measured, straightforward, interesting. But i'm no closer to figuring out how you can change anything. Not that i think he would feel it his place to suggest/persuade me. I'm not an anarchist and I don't think that humans can work that way. I don't see much of an alternative to democracy, though i don't really believe that it works. capitalism is responsible for so many hideous things, yet i like/want/covet stuff. and sometimes i wonder whether it matters whether you understand what your government is doing in your name or not - what difference does it make if you aren't prepared to do anything about it?
