Just had "good people" on one side of the war and "bad"in another?
14 March 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I think it's a great movie that conveys hope to everyone who is at least a little open-mindedness.

It's a movie to see without prejudice, to enjoy the action, to think a bit and will surely help the spectator to keep less absurd wars in the home, in the family, at work, in neighborhood meetings, in political life...

Is it possible to forgive when people kill to his neighbor? Is it possible to be blind to reality? I hope that this film will full your mind and your heart, as it did me.

I remembered these words of "the way", the "best seller" of José María Escrivá:

"Your life is not a sterile life. Be helpful. Let dregs. Shine forth with the torch of your faith and your love.

You must remove, with your apostolic life, the dirt and slime left by the corrupt sowers of hatred".
