one of rare films who are more than touching or good, beautiful or impeccable. it is a profound , convincing pledge for discover yourself . because it is a story of solidarity in a chilling winter. and precise portrait of a legendary figures of French Catholic Church. it is one of the most important roles of Lambert Wilson. and a great work from Claudia Cardinale. sure, it is a remarkable film. but, more important, it is the state after its end. because it is the film of a specific emotion. and this does it impressive , more than the artistic virtues. the feeling about the other. the image of the basic purpose of Emaus. the effort of Father Pierre not only for save the poor people but to remind a fundamental duty. an impressive film. and a clear message.
