5.0 out of 5 stars Nuns: forget "Sister Act.", July 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sisters of War (DVD)
Nuns have for too long been the subject of humor and stereo-typing as stern and uncaring disciplinarians; the hyperbole stems from images of Catholic School culture (of which I am a product) before the 1960's. Sisters of War is an incredible true narrative about nurses and nuns of a particular order and their lay RN counterparts; they are put in prison camps by the Japanese in WW II and nearly reduced to the level of starving animals; but the spiritual strength and commitment of these women is incredible to watch as they consistently disregard their own personal pain and suffering and tend as best they can to the needs and chronically deteriorating health of each other; it is the Good Samaritan story in overdrive. The interview at the epilogue of one surviving nun who is now in her 80's left me struggling to avoid complaining and carping about the daily annoyances of life. This is a must see.
