  1. Thérese unfolds with the sunlight-and-daffodils piety of a Sunday school slide show.
  2. Does offer a few deeply felt moments.
  3. 50
    The devout will no doubt enjoy this picturesque dramatization of an inspirational story many have known since childhood; others may understandably expect something more.
  4. 40
    Artistry is not the inevitable outcome, and fluffy costumes and French location shoots are the only production elements that don't seem wholly amateurish.
  5. Has the spiritual and emotional depth of a Hallmark card.
  6. 25
    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.
  7. Her mortal story seems one of sadness rather than inspiration.
