Most notable in this film is the acting throughout particularly of Sergio Castellito who plays the title role. Faced with the difficulties of compressing all the compelling evidence of the miracles performed by St. Pio we are given a moving and spiritually disturbing account of this wonderful man, who received the stigmata.
Unfortunately I feel that the political implications that underly the censoring of Pio by the Catholic church were rather skimpily exposed in this film leaving the viewer rather baffled about the reasons behind so many of what have subsequently been discovered as blatant victimisations of this well meaning man who often suffered from mean minded misrepresentation on behalf of his peers.
Nevertheless the moving and spiritually stirring ways in which Padre Pio survived the political onslaughts that plagued his life is beautifully protrayed.
The film fully opens up the dramatic implications of the existence of a prolific, uncompromising and holy saint in modern times.
Dont just advertise a Picture - totaly Dissapointed to find the whole thinmg was in Italian.
Not even English Subtitles to follow the story - Waste of Hard earned Money -
START ADVERTISING PROPERLY WITH ALL THE DEATILS THEREIN!!!!!!!!!
the film itself is beautifully made,with amazing, heart wrenching soundtrack I consider Padre Pio to be the second after The Passion of Christ by Mel Gibson most beautiful and well made religious theme film. highly recommended to everyone who speaks Italian& is interested in life of this amazing person Francesco Forgione known as Padre Pio.: )
The fact that Saint Pio had to undergo much persecution from The Church during his time as a Priest is yet another endorsement of sanctity.The scenes dealing with diabolical attacks were skilfully employed furthering an understanding that a Saint must battle not just against temporal authority but, while on earth, is in the forefront of the eternal conflict between Satan and Jesus Christ.
