I rented this video because I wanted to know more about the Franciscan saint Joseph of Cupertino. The director chose to have Schell portray the saint as a kind of bumbling fool, which in my opinion was a directorial mistake. Joseph's simplicity was from within, and that part of the self comes with depth. Schell certainly is an actor who has the capacity for great artistic work and throughout his career has delivered stunning performances. What a shame that the director didn't allow Schell to bring more depth to the character of Joseph of Cupertino.
