Acclaimed actor Leonardo Defilippis gives another stunning performance in this portrayal of the great Carmelite mystic and Doctor of the Church. In his biggest and most challenging film yet, Defilippis gives a warmly human portrait of the mystical John, showing his charity, humility, suffering and patience. Outstanding music score. Also includes other outstanding actors and actresses in roles like Teresa of Avila, Carmelite monks, etc. Shot on location in the beautiful Napa Valley.
