St John Bosco Mission To Love
Flavio Insinna gives a winning performance as John (Don) Bosco, the great priest and educator of youth from the tough streets of Turin, Italy. Beautifully filmed in Italy, this epic movie dramatizes the many challenges that Don Bosco had to overcome from his childhood through founding his religious order, the Salesians. Growing up without a father gave him compassion for the many orphans that he cared for, but he faced persecution from both secular society and the Church as he fought to build a place to house and educate the homeless, outcast youth of Turin. His deep faith, creative imagination, and profound charity shine through in this wonderful film. Stars Charles Dance (Gosford Park) and popular Italian singer and actress Lina Sastri.
