Extremely refined above average TV mini series
23 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an outstanding production obviously made with a larger budget than usual, with a fantastic, realistic yet deeply moving script, fascinating period re- construction with top notch technical contributions, and, most of all a director who forgets he's actually working for TV, but imposes his skilled cinematic language with a tone and style that make even more poignant this TV series, truly shot like for a wide screen audience more than for the annoying small screen's cheap restrictions, both formally and visually, making great use of its own excellent dialog, and accurate script supervision that accomplish to deliver a perfect biopic that feels always very involving, as it is timely. Perfectly cast, with many well known faces, perhaps not too many stars, but, indeed an outstanding group of actors who have both 'faces' and acting style to match, and, are all so unarguably capable to give life to this emotionally complex story, all main cast accomplish to be extremely solid throughout, always watchable, believable, and quite unusually unforgettable for the standards of even a larger scale European TV product made with the intents above mentioned. I won't spoil now the human struggle, and timely story of a doctor, at the turn of the 20th Century, always fighting, and searching for the truth, dedicated completely to his incredibly endearing philanthropic endeavors, since in "San Giuseppe: Doctor to the Poor",

instead than telling obviously expected pitiful generic material, an excellent script and direction manage to end up always on a robust ground of unusual, civil, emotional, political, and other mainly unexplored themes, with a clever story telling utilizing at its best a great, but never excessive number of people, faces, lands, sets, subplots, but that most of all, always stays so greatly connected with its own impeccable, universal depiction of more dramatic, and controversial, key social commentary. One could only hope TV movies would all manage to be this profound, this stylish, and good, completely shot with a theatrical, and visible, effortless dedication to the quality of the story, the acting, the narration, while never compromising with false atmospheres, but always sounding and looking great, produced throughout as a wide, International co- production of such higher scale should always be. "Giuseppe Moscati" has never failed for a moment to entertain my family, while to interest me deeply, and then deeper, about a story that I don't believe had been ever told before, or was never told so engrossingly well so skillfully never less than compelling, to say the least!
