Mother Teresa is A Spiritual Mother for All Seasons ****
9 March 2008 | by edwagreenSee all my reviews

Marvelous film showcasing the excellent acting talent of Olivia Hussey. Hard to believe that it's over 35 years since her 1968 interpretation of "Romeo and Juliet."

This is an extremely inspiring story of the nun who looked for the most simplicity of life in aiding the impoverished. Her dedication to the suffering of mankind is definitely an inspiration to us all.

Not only does the picture beautifully capture what she must endure working among the impoverished, it also shows the problems that she goes through within the Catholic church, accusations of corruption and trying to accomplish her goals in a society that is not accustomed to handle what she wants done.

Hussey is simply magnificent in the part of this saintly woman. She has her down to every movement of her walking, talking, etc.

Too bad that the film did not bring out that Mother Teresa came from an affluent Albanian family.

A wonderful film of the human spirit.
