'If you could hear the voice of God, would you want to keep it secret?' A historical drama based on the memoirs of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit order. This is the story of a soldier, a man of vice and violence who, in his attempt to turn to the light, was forced to wrestle with his inner demons to the very brink of death. A Filipino production shot in Spain and the Philippines, the film chronicles his valiant but futile defense at the Battle of Pamplona, his struggles with depression and near-suicide, his trial before the Inquisition, and his ultimate vindication.
First crowd-funded feature film to be produced by an ex-colony of Spain, the Philippines, in the mother country, Spain, about an indigenously Spanish figure, Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit order. Front-of-the-camera talent is Spanish; but behind-the-camera talents (the producers, writers, designers) are mostly Filipino. See more »
This movie was touching especially to those who follow the same faith or better yet, those who are already familiar with the saint. For a 2-hour film, story line was smooth, although it was dragging at some parts. They could have added more of his past life into the movie, and not just 30 second flashbacks. In my opinion there were a lot of important things that happened in his past that could have been squeezed in. The cinematography isn't that great either; it felt chopped up most of the time and the camera angles were sometimes off. The message of the movie was clear and simple. The acting was great, although their accents were heavy so I suggest watching it with subtitles.
All-in-all it was a good film! Would recommend to everyone interested in the life of St. Iggy 😊
