Wonders, Miracles, Breathtaking Scenery, Glorious Actors...
9 September 2004 | by (amsterdam) – See all my reviews

As I have tried to express my deep love for Taviani films before, I will not start that again. But boy is this film a marvel !!

Overwhelming photography, getting wider and wider where the protagonist tries to get further away from each and everyone. To find the temptation which will finally get him down from his pedestal (= his pride) in the renovated shack that was once his hermit cell.

The story is gripping and a true marvel, the pace elaborate (NOT slow, definitely not slow !!) and thoughtful.

And the actors ! What performances !! Where to start ? With Julian Sands of course, who is glorious even when he is not allowed to use his own voice. And the women in his life !! Just like that other bearded miracle worker, Father Sergio has 4. A mother and 3 ladies. (but then I'd forget his sister, and that would be very ungrateful...) Superb performances by all of them, and each and every other cast member.

Let's pray for another miracle: Let's sincerely hope Maestro Paolo and Maestro Vittorio make some dozen more of their sublime storytelling films...
