Olivia Hussey
7 April 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Always, for me, her performance was a sort of revelation. as Saint Mary, mother of God. As Juliet. the delicacy to explore the role and give its entire chain of nuances remains admirable. "Mother Teresa" is just another example. for the inspired meeting between delicate precision of acting, a clear, useful message and beautiful cinematography. it is a generous film. and that does it a film for everybody. because it is a film about duty, God and sacrifices. about, in fact, the sense of life. not thesis, not lessons. only a travel across the signs of a world in sufferance and the answer who could be offered day by day. sure, for many people, Mother Teresa is a saint. for others - source of controverses. or cultural icon. the film is not exactly the tool of one of that directions. but only a sensitive testimony about a way to change the world helping the near man and woman near you. and it does that in the admirable manner. Olivia Hussey work is only one of basic motifs for see this beautiful film.
