 Our Description

"Very well made, with a subtlety that's often lacking in religious features, this is a vibrant, soulful work that stands comparison to a more familiar series like Jesus of Nazareth. - DVD Times

"Castellitto's soulful performance conveys an accessible blend of humor, sanctity and tough love.  Beautifully shot, with picturesque Italian vistas, the film eloquently captures Padre Pio's simple spirituality of uniting one's life with Christ-especially in suffering."-U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Office for Film and Broadcasting

Sergio Castellitto (Mostly Martha) stars as the famous Italian saint, Padre Pio (1887-1968).  Like Saint Francis of Assisi, Padre Pio had the stigmata: the wounds of Christ visible on his body.  Throughout his life, he performed miracles and healings, caring for both the physically sick as well as those with spiritual illnesses.  Filled with gorgeous scenery from the Italian countryside, this film follows Padre Pio's life from a young boy through his death.  Director Carlo Carlei (Flight of the Innocent) captures the humility, humor, and common sense of  St. Pio, as well as showing the persecution he suffered from both satanic  attacks and misguided Church officials who distrusted him.  Winner of the Audience Award at the 2001 Los Angeles Italian Film Awards.
