Synopsis:
A colourful, fun and breezy take on sex and religion, Vinko Bresan's The Priest's Children is a comedy charmer. Though sex is at its heart, there is nothing too explicit about the going-on, and the picturesque Dalmatian island backdrop looks postcard perfect. Young Catholic priest Fabian (Kresimir Mikic) is sent to the tiny island to take over from elderly priest Jakov (Zdenko Botic) but the old man is so popular that locals lobby to have him stay on the island and take mass occasionally. Fabian is bemused by the lack of births on the island, until he discovers there is a roaring trade in under-the-counter condoms.
Local tobacconist Petar (Niksa Butijer) admits to Fabian in confession that he is supplying the condoms, and Fabian convinces him that it would be God's will to start puncturing each condom packet. They are joined by local pharmacist Marin (Drazen Kuhn), who secretly replaces birth control pills with vitamins. Before long the birthrate - and marriage rate - on the island start increasing, with foreign TV crews even showing an interest in this island of love.
