Quotes

Headmaster Tissona: I want to tell you about a dream I had. I'm in a bobsled, sliding down the snow at amazing speed. And who do you think is sitting with me? Edith Piaf. She's with me. Edith Piaf!
Eddie Tikel: Who is she, sir?
Headmaster Tissona: She's not relevant to the story. Ask your father. And while sliding, she's singing, "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien." And I hold her and feel her holiness flow into my heart.

Saint Clara....a movie like no other, a movie about powers.....the power of youth, the power of magic, the power of love, and the power to change a person
20 July 2000 | by superstar21See all my reviews

After stumbling upon this movie, it has turned into one of my favorites. Despite the subscripts it was still able to capture me. Almost as if I knew the language. Grant it, it's about children, but thats the beauty of it. The fact that she's magical or whatever is just a surface texture, the deeper meaning and feeling this movie brings out, is what really struck me. I urge anyone who hasnt seen it, to see it, and anyone who has, I would like to know if you agree with me. This movie happened to have a very powerful effect on me, and I think its brilliant.
