In a time of ever more church scandals this portrait of the modest Father Thaler comes as a welcome insight into the enduring values of the Catholic belief. It follows the lively 91 year old through his everyday life in Vienna – in the church, as well as in his study where he practices conducting to the music of Tom Waits. Father Thaler has found his own “way to love” within the Catholic belief, while at the same time never losing contact with reality.
