"it has always been this way for me. I am a slave."
5 October 2013 | by (Pine Grove, United States) – See all my reviews

"it has always been this way for me. I am a slave."

Bakhita is a tender-hearted story. She was a powerless stranger in a foreign land - more than a stranger as she was the first like her to be among these foreigners. Her presence provoked love, fear, strength, peace and violence. She remains calm throughout her circumstances. She calmly bares her back to the whip.

"who is this?" "it is Jesus, the son of God" "in my country, only slaves are crucified."

As I get older, the more I appreciate the tender-hearted stories.

"you owed us nothing but you gave us all."

I will watch 'Bakhita' again.
