Flavio Insinna gives a winning performance as John (Don) Bosco, the great priest and educator of youth from the tough streets of Turin, Italy. Beautifully filmed in Italy, this epic movie dramatizes the many challenges that Don Bosco had to overcome from his childhood through founding his religious order, the Salesians, for helping educate boys. Growing up without a father gave him compassion for the many orphans that he cared for, while he faced persecution from both secular society and the Church as he fought to build a place to house and educate the homeless, outcast youth of Turin. His deep faith, creative imagination and profound charity shine through in this wonderful film. Also stars Charles Dance (Gosford Park) and popular Italian singer and actress Lina Sastri.

This DVD contains the following language options: Italian with English or Spanish subtitles, or English dubbed track. This movie is Not Rated. Includes a 16 page collector’s booklet. Running time: 200 minutes

This is a Region 1 DVD (playable ONLY in Bermuda, Canada, the Cayman Islands, United States and U.S. territories).

    What perserverance!

    Don Bosco sets out to straighten out misguided boys some time in the mid 1800s. He could have a girlfriend or even gotten married. But he stayed on path. Sadly, there is no interpretation of Grigio, his dog. And that's the reason I bought this dvd. Apparently Grigio appears and protect Don Bosco any time trouble nears. But you don't see that in this piece. It was supposed to be an angel from God in the form of a watch dog. Kind of bummed they didn't portray that part.
