Storyline

Young and inexperienced Sister Ann has just arrived at her next posting at Samaritan House, a Dominican order located in a disreputable neighborhood of Ghent, Belgium. Sister Ann is enthusiastic, progressive but naive, all which irks one of the senior sisters, Sister Cluny, especially the fact that Sister Ann has a prized material possession, a guitar she's named Adele. Sister Ann considers Adele and her music to be her friends. Contrary to Sister Cluny, the Mother Prioress believes Sister Ann will be a welcome addition to their order. This posting is to be the training ground for Sister Ann and others to become missionaries in Africa. Sister Ann's path takes a detour when the order's Father Clementi hears Sister Ann sing. He believes Sister Ann should record her music and as a favor asks Robert Gerarde of Primavera Records for recording time. Unknown at the time the request is made, Robert and Sister Ann are old friends who attended the Paris Conservatory of Music together five years... Written by Huggo

Glory to God!
4 July 2006 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

For Catholics, this movie is very easy to digest. This movie illustrates age-old lessons from the gospel parables in such a simple yet compelling plot. Sis Ann is your everyday man. She has God-given talents. Composing and singing beautiful songs which are her prayers. Will she keep these talents to herself (bury the talents ) or share it with the public to glorify God? Initially, she is confused by the attention and adulation of the world but finally able to lift herself back on track in the service of the Lord. Fr. Clementi is the able priest who trusts in Divine PRovidence. And God provides! Even the minor characters will help remind the viewers of Christian lessons as they were taught in catechism days, like humility versus jealousness, ignorance versus wisdom, etc. Among the songs in the track, I like the Beyond the Stars the most.
