I was only introduced to this timeless masterpiece during a movie night in my summer in Rome. Now, it comes out totally remade to today’s standards of movie making and it is a must see this summer! It opens this upcoming Friday, August 19 in theaters.


It is a story of how one comes to encounter the Lord Jesus. It is a story of how we all come to some point of encounter in our lives with the face of love in the crucified Lord. So please don’t miss out this upcoming week on this timeless remade movie!
