La dureza de las experiencias que vivió no doblegaron la bondad de esta mujer, que dió todo por bueno cuando descubrió que le llevaron a conocer el amor de Dios por cada uno de nosotros.

The actress who plays the role of Bakhita does a remarkable job in portraying her. St. Bakhita was known for her charity and kindness to one and all and this is wonderfully portrayed by Fatou Kine Boye. She emits a serenity and peace, so much so, it seems that Bakhita is right in front of you! The African scenes are realistic and beautiful. But the most important aspect of this movie is the unveiling of the ills that have afflicted human kind from the beginning: racism, loneliness, selfishness, hypocrisy, pride, cruelty. And for these ills Bakhita's spirituality and character is the balm, for she repays these with love, meekness, selflessness, humility, charity,understanding i.e. the practice of heroic virtue. This film also carries a pro-life message. Look for it! It is both direct and subtle.
There is are very disturbing aspects of racism in this movie, which does make one wince. However, the booklet from Ignatius press which is enclosed states "..Some scenes in the film exaggerate the mistreatment of Bakhita by the Italians.This, perhaps, is a visual meditation on the evils of racism, using Bakhita's life as a vehicle rather than a destination".
The afore mentioned booklet contains the following:
2)Prayer to obtain graces from St.Bakhita
3)Biography of St. Josephine Bakhita
4)Chronology of the life of the saint
5)Sayings of St. Bakhita
6)The Canossian sisters
7)Two popes on St. Bakhita and
There are also several beautiful pictures of scenes from the film.
This movie is in Italian with English and Spanish subtitles and runs for 190 minutes.
In addition I also recommend watching the docu-drama 'Two suitcases' for further study.
To summarize, I use the words of the Holy Father Benedict XVI ....'A VERY BEAUTIFUL FILM.....'
In regards to remarks by K. Ostrowski on this movie from the most popular review on this film: I understand that a movie like this may have more fiction than fact in how it portrays the life of Saint Bakhita, and I myself prefer accuracy, but if that is the case, we should throw out a lot of great Catholic-themed movies. For example, "For Greater Glory"(a simply stunning movie) does not portray accurately the lives of Saint Jose Sanchez del Rio or General Gorostieta and combines two priest-generals into one character. "The Agony and the Ecstasy," another amazing movie, does not portray Michelangelo and Pope Julius II exactly like they were, nor does "The Reluctant Saint" portray the life of Saint Joseph of Cupertino exactly as it happened, nor are any of the excellent Italian Catholic movies released through Saint Ignatius Press completely accurate. And "Quo Vadis," one of the greatest Christian movies ever made, is not very much in step with Henryk Sienkiewicz's great Nobel Prize winning novel by that same name. This doesn't make any of these movies not worth watching, and I would recommend wholeheartedly every single one of them. They are all masterpieces and so is "Bakhita." It will simply stun you with its powerful message of love--because the cruelty and prejudice it portrays is part of everyone's life and has never gone away (in fact people are worse today and have less excuse to be since they are better educated and should know better).
Also, yes, the people who kidnap Bakhita in this movie are Arabs and K. Ostrowski simply cannot recognize that through lack of knowledge of anthropology. The Muslims who rule northern Sudan to this day consider themselves to be Arabs, though they are much darker than the Arabs in Syria or Iraq and most people, since they are not familiar with ethnic differences, will not be able to make a distinction. That is why the world couldn't understand the massacre of Africans by Arabs in Darfour (both Muslims), because they both looked black to Westerners. Yet the Sudanese slave owner of Bakhita and his family have facial features of Arab Sudanese, which are features of a mixed race,including a straight nose, vs. the African Sudanese portrayed in this movie who have more obvious, pure African features. So, though this movie doesn't portray the issue of Muslim Arabs enslaving pagan Africans, the dress of the slave holders is obviously Arab and associated with Islam. But the point of the movie is love, not hatred for Muslims or anyone else. Also, Bakhita having a memento from a witch doctor throughout the movie is not a sign of supporting paganism in the movie. Catholicism has been wonderful in being able to take certain cultural symbols, often quite pagan, and making them Christian. For example, the Christmas tree is a symbol of everlasting life given to us by the birth of Christ, yet it is directly descended from the sacred tree cults of the druids of the pre-Christian pagan era in Europe. Bakhita's necklace simply reminds her of the home she came from, as her only link to freedom, the freedom that she does not actually find in its fullness until she encounters Jesus Christ and His Church. The Catholic imagery of this movie is unmistakable and there is nothing secular about it. The priests, the nuns, the Cardinal Patriarch of Venice are shown with great nobility and true Christian love. One feature that impressed me was how it was actually the beauty of Catholic art that brings Bakhita in this movie to the Catholic faith and to her final decision about becoming a nun. A plain, Protestant church would not have converted Bakhita--it was the stark image of a crucifix and the beauty of a Madonna with Child which bring her to these life changing events.
This is a tear-jerker and everyone should enjoy it. Because of some graphic scenes of violence and cruelty, this movie is not appropriate for small children, though teenagers should be encouraged to see this amazing movie.
