Dr. Giuseppe Moscti, "the holy physician of Naples," is one of the greatest of modern saints. Devoted to the science of medicine as well as the promotion of spiritual health, he was a medical doctor and layman in the 20th century. He came from an aristocratic family but devoted his medical career to serving the poor. A medical school professor and a pioneer in the field of biochemistry whose research led to the discovery of insulin as a cure for diabetes, he also regarded his medical practice as a lay apostolate; a ministry to the afflicted. This Italian film, made on location, tells the life story of this remarkable man. Directed by Giacomo Campiotti (director of the acclaimed 2002 miniseries Doctor Zhivago) and starring Giuseppe Fiorello as Dr. Moscati, this film also stars Ettore Bassi (Clare and Francis) and Kasia Smutniak. Italian with English and Spanish subtitles. 177 minutes, not rated. SGMOM
