Do you want to see a movie about a REAL saint?
3 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

Malcolm McDowell is brilliant as always. If you only know him from "A Clockwork Orange," see the movie "If ...", done in the 60's (my favorite movie as an adolescent). McDowell brings a depth that few can equal, to a role depicting one of the giants of the modern age. His German accent is perhaps not perfect ... but who cares! His sympathy for the character, his ability to climb into the mind of Dr. Schweitzer, the beauty of the set, the authenticity of the portrayal, and the power of the true story itself, make a unique and meaningful film. I strongly recommend this movie.
