A small boy has a crisis on his confirmation day that carries on through his life.
15 August 2001 | by dberknerSee all my reviews

I certainly hope this is the movie I remember. There seems to be no plot summary on the site but the title and the director seem right. Long ago I worked in a New York movie theater while going to school and I have this gentle memory of a beautiful story about a young boy who falls from a cliff on his confirmation day. When he comes back to life, it is taken as a miracle and he goes to live with the monks. It is a very bitter sweet and touching film with a scene I will always remember of the girl he loves walking through a lamp shop and all the lights turning on, one by one, as she walks towards him. All these years I had thought that the lead actor was Giancarlo Giannini. I guess I must have been wrong. I would really love to see this movie again and recomend it highly.
