Great message!
8 June 2018 | by gerimartinezSee all my reviews

This movie has a great message which describes humility through a decision this man has made. He quoted many verses from the Bible throughout the movie but it didn't state where to find them. The fact the much of the film showed him speaking in Spanish makes this an easy film for Spanish speaking people who would like to see it. Having the translation below what he said also made it easy for the times he spoke in other languages. The movie was worth it for me to see. I recommend it highly. Stay focused on the words. This movie was made very well for all people and religious sects. Enjoy!
