Anthony: Warrior of God

2006 NR

Jordi Mollà masterfully portrays St. Anthony of Padua, the beloved 12-century saint who traded in a life of privilege for a life of service to God, in Antonello Belluco's biography. Having lived off the fat of the land in medieval Lisbon, Anthony was overcome by the troubled world around him and joined a monastery. Although physically weak, he took on the government and the Church on behalf of the downtrodden, a stand that led to his canonization.
