I would give my approval as good to see but only the movie is short
27 March 2014 | by litoyparas143See all my reviews

I am giving an 8 vote for the movie. Geraldine Chaplin gave the movie life by her very good portrayal of Mother Teresa particularly in speech, however, this movie is short, it needed more scenes because I think this movie does not include the later life of Mother Teresa. Her famous quotes should be included and the situation regarding the hardship of the poor and the sick is excellently shown. If I would be asked if I would recommend this for movie theater or big screen viewing I would say yes but I would recommend this more for home movie player viewing so that reflection can be more exercised. And the movie can be replayed easily for meditation. For those who knows the zeal, the noble work and great love that Mother Teresa put in her work of helping the poorest of the poor for her great love of God will certainly love this movie. Two thumbs up!
