Storyline

A wide-eyed sister missionary arrives in Austria to begin her 18-month-long mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Despite having to make a few cultural adjustments, Sister Taylor meets every challenge with optimism. Her enthusiasm to share the Gospel makes her indomitable, until she finds herself with an abrasive companion whom she doesn't understand and doesn't particularly like. This challenge, along with the ordinary vicissitudes of missionary life begin to wear on her, and thus in the process of sharing the Gospel, Sister Taylor finds herself gaining a better understanding of its key precepts: faith, repentance, forgiveness, and charity.

Fifty seven channels and NEARLY nothing on (tv)
7 September 2014 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

The boss sang it in 1992 and i experimented this fact during my west coast – east coast this summer. I was in America for 23 days with a different city, hotel room each day and for more than 3 weeks, my zapping on cable TV was a lost time : an explosion of ads, limited sport choices, silly programs about home, food, TV reality, sharks or crimes, awful movies, stupid sitcoms, looping news, well, not an once of creativity or culture…

Except when i reached Salt Lake city and i discovered this movie on BYU TV.

This is just an amazing feature, totally out of time and deeply engaging. In a way, it's close to « Hideous Kinky » as it's about a young woman who travels abroad to fulfill her faith. I think that in a way, I aspire myself to that alternative life so that's explain why that kind of movies makes always a big impression on me. In all cases, meeting this kind of girl who is driven by spiritual needs would be a miracle as looks and money seems to be the only assets in relationships today. Anyway, here, the « sister » is just amazing as her enthusiasm and energy are contagious. Her experience is very well told with fun and with wisdom. It's cool to see that they can joke about their religion just because smile and laughs comes from their heart thus from their creator ! It gives also a good lesson about tolerance and compassion : loving your neighbors isn't only loving the ones who cares about you but especially the ones who are difficult ! And as in « Signs », you can understand that having faith is to never be alone and to have a special connection with the creator ! At last, the director frames with talent all the shoots and the songs are just great : « as sisters in Zion », « silent night » ! In conclusion, if those angels errand, they are also touched by grace as this movie really shines your day now and after !
