The Reluctant Saint

1962 Rated NR 1hr 45m

Maximilian Schell stars as Giuseppe Desa, a 17th-century Italian peasant who becomes a Franciscan friar after his mother pressures a hesitant abbot (Ricardo Montalban) to accept her son into the monastery -- and a bishop (Akim Tamiroff) takes a shine to him. Upon being ordained a priest (thanks to a string of remarkable events), Giuseppe begins to levitate while praying, leading some to believe that his miraculous power is the work of the devil.
