23 December 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

for many Romano-Catholics, the figure, the facts, experience and testimony of Faustyna Kowalska are not unknown. her life is one of the pillars of West Christian popular sensitivity. so, that film reminds old truth. and its fundamental virtue is not to present a biography but to do that in a delicate, gentle, precise manner. story of a meeting, it is not a manifesto or faith demonstration. it is a beautiful confession about the fight of a young nun who transforms her vision about The Savior in the axis of life. the life of her but, more important, the life of her Church. as Greek- Orthodox, I admit, the subject seems be always strange. but the movie has the rare gift to use not only right style to show the story but the right actress, Dorota Segda , who has the science to reflect new nuances to a legendary Catholic saints.than, important thing is the image who reminds the spirit of a lost Central Europe. another good point - the language. because it is a Polish story. not only geographical but spiritual. and the dialog becomes the useful detail for open new dimensions to the portrait of Faustina.
