Movie Info

A young boy's innocence is shattered when his mother enters into an elicit affair with a mysterious blue-eyed stranger in a two-part, four hour miniseries directed by Jerry Ciccoritti and starring Academy Award-winner Sophia Loren. Vittorio Innocente is a typical young boy from the tiny Italian village of Valle del Sole. When Vittorio's youthful innocence is shattered by his mother's enigmatic boyfriend, the youngster is compelled to shed light on the mystery of his mother's past by piecing together her remarkable story one chapter at a time. As he does so, Vittorio gradually learns of the centuries-old superstitions that continue to influence the actions of the naïve villagers, and gains greater insight than ever into the true nature of humanity. Though the hypocrisy, fears, and maliciousness he discovers in the centuries-old village soon leads Vittorio to discover the truth about his mother, those very same discoveries also threaten to unravel the very foundation of his safely sheltered world.

Critic Reviews for Lives of the Saints

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (7)

  • The moral of this well-shot but grossly uneven film is obviously that, once you get what you want, you may well find either that you don't want it, or that devastating complications can ensue.

    January 26, 2007 | Rating: 3/5
  • "Muddled" is the polite word, balderdash the preferred one.

    January 26, 2007 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The Italian denim company Meltin' Pot paid for Rankin and Chris Cottam's unendurably pretentious stab at gangland street spirituality. Why?

    January 26, 2007 | Full Review…
  • The direction from Rankin and Chris Cottam is very uncertain; there is lots and lots of shouty acting and a cringeworthy denouement worthy of Viz comic's legendary cockney villain Big Vern.

    January 26, 2007 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • A bizarre brew of Brit-grit, magic realism and religious allegory.

    January 26, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Ambitious and beguiling.
