QUO VADIS

Quality:
****
Age:
Older children to adults
QUO VADIS is an epic presentation of the conflict between the paganism of Nero’s Rome and early Christianity, in a story involving a Roman general who falls in love with a Christian woman. This profound story of Christian martyrs is one of the all-time great epics, but it does contain carefully presented images of Christians being killed for sport in Nero’s Coliseum and thus needs a slight caution for young children.

ELENI

Quality:
****
Age:
ELENI is the greatest movie about a mother’s love in the face of adversity. It is the true story of a mother who was murdered by the communists during the Greek Civil War. Eleni proclaims, “Christ is risen” on Easter, prays to God and concludes before her execution with the touching statement that “It is such a joy to be a mother that I thank God for letting me know it.”

LUTHER

Quality:
****
Age:
Teenagers to Adults
The movie LUTHER covers the early years of Martin Luther’s life, from his days as a monk in the early 1500s to the proclamation of the Augsburg Confession in 1530, which founded the Lutheran Church in Germany. It is a wonderful, entertaining historical drama that, despite some flaws, shows how one man’s faith in God changed the history of the world.
