This téléfilm film on the life of Mary, Joseph's wife and Jesus' mother, from the conception of Jesus to the Assumption into heaven at the side of her son, is a biblical story. That means, it follows the texts of the Holy Scriptures to the letter. A couple of scenes are taken from apocryphal writings. It's the very human story of a village woman called to a transcendental task: to be the mother of God. The mystical experiences, difficult to film are approached with humanity. There is no exaggerated sentimentality. The plot follows the life of Jesus as mentioned in the Gospels. Nice historical reconstruction of the sites, the costumes and the customs.
