A modest masterpiece that balances the sweet and the bitter
14 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't like numbers: movies have too many aspects to condense to a scalar.

I saw this movie on PBS one evening when I expected nothing of it, a movie from Colombia about a poor man who tries to get the Church to canonize his dead daughter. I never heard of the actors or the director nor seen them before or since. They adeptly finessed the temptations to maudlin sentimentality and a diatribe against the Church or bureaucracy in general. I found the representation of the Church farcical, not diabolical: they're just human too. How would I react to a modest rural man with a corpse still fresh after twelve years? It is a marvelous modest masterpiece that has my favorite virtue of not trying to be grander than the story deserves.

I strongly recommend the source story, 'The Saint', collected in 'Strange Pilgrims' by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez. I just read it, which inspired me to look the movie up on IMDb. It casts a whole new twist on the story.
