Dear friends: I don't often recommend films but last night I saw the extraordinary "Happy as Lazzaro," on @netflix. A combination of an Italian neo-realist film and a parable, it hints at the stories of Jesus, St. Francis of Assisi and of course Lazarus.
It is an exquisitely made film, at once moving and challenging, clear and confusing, consoling and shocking. The religious themes, Catholic and otherwise, are throughout what I would say is close to a masterpiece.
It's one of the most profoundly religious films you will ever see.
