The life of little St. Therese of Lisieux, depicted in minimalist vignettes. Therese and her sisters are all nuns in a Carmelite convent. Her devotion to Jesus and her concept of "the little way" to God are shown clearly, using plain modern language. A sense of angelic simplicity comes across without fancy lights, choirs, or showy miracles. —Molly Malloy
A touch of heaven
As a lover of saints and cinema, I seek out films with true depictions of holy personages. This one takes the cake. Cavalier himself called it a documentary. The auspiciousness of saint Theresé is channeled and caught in every artistic detail for 90+ minutes of immortal artwork.
