The greatest movie ever!!
16 January 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lives of the Saints is the greatest movie ever!! It's so good!! I think everyone should see it! I love the parts when you see Vittorio as very young...he's so adorable!! It so deserves a 10!! It's a movie with a lot of Italian but a lot of English as well. I think many Italians would love this movie because they understand it. Like my grandparents for example. Their Italian and speak/understand very little English but when they saw this movie they understand most of it. Everyone in my family loved this movie!! They did a great job coming up with the ideas of this movie! good job!! They even show a lot about an Italian life-style. This movie is great and exciting. You should watch it!
