Review

Two Thumbs Up Inspirational and absolutely fascinating By Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel, Siskel and Ebert Ebert: The documentary, Mother Teresa, goes a long way toward explaining why this quiet, simple old woman has become on of the most loved and respected people in the world. For one thing, we find out in this movie, she's not so quiet and simple. She comes across as an intelligent, determined and sometimes very funny woman who was born in Albania. ..What I saw in this film was a woman who is not only idealistic and, must I use this word, saintly, but also very practical and a well organized person, a natural leader whose vision is so clear and concentrated the she started an international movement with almost literally no financial resources. Big business could study this movie for lessons from Mother Teresa in organization and management.Siskel: At one point she's talking to some of the people working for her. She says to these young peple, "If you don't have that zeal, pack up and go home. Not need to stay". I mean, she could be Lee Iacocca talking to the Chrysler plant.So you see the full woman here. You see tragic scenes of her helping people, reaching and touching the people that no one else will touch.We both appreciated the documentary on the amazing life of Mother Teresa, an inspiring story, a well made documentary about one of the most chfaritable spirits of our time, Two Thumbs Up. --Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel, Siskel and Ebert

RIVETINGTerrifically moving and convincing By Vincent Canby, The New York Times The film, "Mother Teresa" was made by Ann and Jeanette Petrie, sisters who produced and directed it as a team. They honor their subject without turning her into a sentimental icon. The film offers biographical materialbut mostly the film is about the woman today, and these sections are riveting, disturbing and occasionally funny. With all of her apparent innocence and serenity, Mother Teresa has a firm unstoppable willThe Mother Teresa discovered by the Petries is no vaguely motivated do-gooder. She's a woman of formidable, awesome faith, which is at the root of everything she does even when she's receiving an honorary degree from Harvard. "Many people," she says at one point, "mistake our work for our vocation. Our vocation is the love of Jesus". Unlike those who are irresistibly drawn to Mother Teresa as a media figure, the Petries appreciate her priorities. --Vincent Canby, The New York Times

MARVELOUS Successfully moves the spirit and lifts the soul By Daniel Ruth, The Chicago Sun Times Five years in the making, "Mother Teresa" is a brilliant documentary. This is not just a study of an individual's struggle against poverty, hunger and sickness. It also is a reminder that in this terrifying world, goodness and hope remain for all of usDuring this 81 minute film viewers will get to know not just a symbol of virtue, but also a real human being capable of stubbornness, political savvy and engaging humor. ..The film "Mother Teresa" follows the nun, troubled by a heart condition, on her many travels around the world. She is shown meeting with world leaders, crossing a battle zone in Beirut to help trapped children, and cleaning out a building for the order in San Francisco. The film "Mother Teresa" deserves whatever accolades it receives. --Daniel Ruth, The Chicago Sun Times
