beautiful
28 June 2015 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

like many Catholic films. the surprise is the performance of Gigi Proietti. convincing, touching, seductive. inspired translation of the life of Filippo Neri , using the humor, the gentle intentions and gestures, the definition of the mission of the Church in admirable web of faith and humanitarianism. a film about the sense of life. out of complicated definitions, naive in many scenes but lovely. and good occasion for remind the essence of Cristianity. a series who could be useful. not only for the religious public but for the searchers of joy. for a special form of entertainment, wise, clear, interested to give a better sense of life and reality. so, beautiful.
