OUR OPINION: A biographical film that wants to show how the last days of the Virgin Mary would have been and how the apostles ask for her help. It is noted that it has a low budget but very well resolved, achieving a beautiful picture and getting the viewer in that intimacy with Mary. Full of dialogues and discourses of how the Church should persist and in what way, without lack of faith or hope. They are messages full of news, which seems that they are addressed to the faithful of today. Mary is a loving hand that with her words helps us to persevere and not stop fighting looking at Christ. It tells us about the path we have to walk. It shows us what humility and the difference between leading and being a servant and instrument of Christ really is.
INCONVENIENT: The problem might be in the recording mode, hand-held camera throughout the film, which can sometimes cause discomfort to the viewer by the constant movement of the camera.
"...Behold your mother" -Jn. 19:26
There is one person in scripture that had the experience of living thirty years with Jesus from birth through His resurrection: Mary. His Mother. After a full life lived with the Son of God, fleeing into Egypt, losing him in the temple and seeing him placed upon the cross- Mary is living her final earthly days pondering her life with Jesus. Set ten years after the Resurrection, Mary, eagerly awaits the return of the apostle Peter. Arriving at Mary's home after years of traveling, preaching and narrowly escaping death, Peter expresses the overwhelming responsibility of preaching the word amidst heresies and conflict. Providing the encouragement only a mother can, Peter re-discovers the truth: he is not leading, he is following and walking in the light of God.
