Please read Allessandro Serenellis final letter which I did found.
"I'm nearly 80 years old. I'm about to depart.
Looking back at my past, I can see that in my early youth, I chose a bad path which led me to ruin myself.
My behavior was influenced by print, mass-media and bad examples which are followed by the majority of young people without even thinking. And I did the same. I was not worried.
There were a lot of generous and devoted people who surrounded me, but I paid no attention to them because a violent force blinded me and pushed me toward a wrong way of life.
When I was 20 years-old, I committed a crime of passion. Now, that memory represents something horrible for me. Maria Goretti, now a Saint, was my good Angel, sent to me through Providence to guide and save me.
I still have impressed upon my heart her words of rebuke and of pardon. She prayed for me, she interceded for her murderer. Thirty years of prison followed.
If I had been of age, I would have spent all my life in prison. I accepted to be condemned because it was my own fault.
Little Maria was really my light, my protectress; with her help, I behaved well during the 27 years of prison and tried to live honestly when I was again accepted among the members of society.

The powerful movie is beautifully filmed on location with outstanding cinematography. A real bonus in this film is the gorgeous music score by legendary Oscar winning film composer Ennio Morricone. Plus the DVD includes a very informative 16 page collector's booklet about Maria Goretti and the film, replete with numerous photos from the film. This film is a winner!
A poorly-written script that deflated quickly after the first ten minutes. There were many inconsistencies where the writer took too many liberties with the actual story. It seems that an Italian-made movie about an Italian saint would be a more accurate tribute. It was a made-for-TV movie in Italy, and maybe that's the explanation, however, this had the potential to be a much finer presentation.

The story was done very well. The quality of actors was superb.
We loved it.
With the exception of the excitement at the beginning and the end of the film, I found it rather boring, meandering, unfocused. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Govinda108
