I am born in the day of beatification of Giuseppe Moscati. And, against the difference of Christian confession, I saw doctor Moscati as more than admirable person. As a sort of friend , maybe not saint but wonderful example for the care for the others, for a clear and hard mission and profound dedication. This serie reflects his life in splendid manner. Touching, powerful, convincing, bitter , amusing, heroic are few words defining this film. The basic virtue - the beautiful reflection of the context of his life, from the streets of Naples to te situations of crisis. It is a honest hommage to a great man. And, surprising for me, Beppe Fiorello does a great job. Each scene is an inspired portrait of people, realistic, delicate, useful, profound inspired. So, little more than a life of Romano- Catholic saint. But portrait of the true form of happiness being part of the other.
