  1. Has the spiritual and emotional depth of a Hallmark card.

    Therese's story would work better as a marionette show than on the big screen. The camera is best at picking up subtleties, and there are simply none here.
  3. Her mortal story seems one of sadness rather than inspiration.

    How one could see this and not be touched is beyond my comprehension. This is a wonderful movie, well cast, well directed & true to the life of St. Therese. Kudos to all who helped bring this to the screen. Full Review »

    Amazing movie, Saint Therese sets a great example of how to love God, and how to get to Heaven.
