Monsieur Vincent (1947)

Links

Overview

Biopic of St. Vincent de Paul, of how he founded the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and his motivations and reflections.

Review

Very good and inspiring. Seems very accurate.

Caveats

Overall best for teens and up:

  • Brief scenes of gore near middle
  • Very mature themes
  • Discussion of abandoned and tortured babies
  • Some saintly arguing with bad nuns

It also contains visual breast feeding near the middle, which parents may want to censor or discuss when watching with their children.

Also:

  • Only in French, with subtitles.
