Storyline

The life of little St. Therese of Lisieux, depicted in minimalist vignettes. Therese and her sisters are all nuns in a Carmelite convent. Her devotion to Jesus and her concept of "the little way" to God are shown clearly, using plain modern language. A sense of angelic simplicity comes across without fancy lights, choirs, or showy miracles. Written by Molly Malloy

Outstanding Film
15 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed this film starring Catherine Mouchet, (St. Therese of Lisieux) who wanted at a very early age to become a Nun and was refused by her own Priest and clergy of her faith. Therese also went to the Pope and was declined and had to wait for about two years. This film shows the deep love Therese had for her Lord and other sister's whom she pours her heart and soul into helping others. There is a grave illness that Therese develops and she refuses to take any medicine for the pain and suffering and prays constantly to her Lord and Savior. Great look into the life of a young girl who wanted nothing else in life but to become a loving person for others.
