    • Synopsis
    • The statements of father Ksawery are compliant with the official instructions of Catholic Church although some critical voices against father Ksawery's activity can sometimes be heard.

      Through the observation of three couples taking part in the retreats the film exposes problems that marriages confront while trying to liberate themselves from sexual suppressions resulting from their religion.

      ‘And God created sex...’ also arises the issue of the Church statements actual status. Do the instructions of the pre-marital purity, abstinence as a form of contraception, fidelity to the grave and having numerous children became an anachronism, the way of stopping the time? Or maybe they carry some timeless values that a modern human has lost somewhere among the mass culture and erotically tempting hypes.
