Review this movie
SuzanneB.Oct 19, 2004A great saint, yes, but an inferior, sugar-coated, and shallow piece of filmmaking. Therese deserves better.
ThomasH.Oct 5, 2004This film is anything but art. The camera is not allowed to tell the story as it is overwhelmed by a didactic quality which ruins the medium in this case. The 1980s version is far superior and respectful of the audience. God save us from sappy cinema, especially when it purports to relate to God.
ScottB.Oct 18, 2004An opportunity missed! Did the filmmaker read "the story of a soul" (therese's autobiography)? I recommend multiple viewings of "The Song of Bernadette" (after reading the book) to learn how to handle such material.
