Just wondering about the photos - who appears stronger and who weaker, the actors or the real people?MARILYN DUNPHY 7 years agoDavid (#1): You can tell all that from photographs? I saw the film and thought it was extremely well done. I did not find it ''self indulgent'' at all, which is perhaps one reason (among others) why Hollywood overlooked it. It is reflective, and compels the viewer to empathize with the real fear that these men must have faced. It also beautifully conveys their deep sense of fidelity to God and to their fellow humans which eventually results in the communal, as well as individual, discernment that they should stay in the face of certain death. If that's plastic, give me plastic.Theresa Maccarone7 years agoWhat a fantasic film. I saw it last night. It's the perfect movie to watch during the lenten season. I am disappointed in myself for not trying any spriutual reading during lent, but this movie certainly made up for it!
