Were the Catholic Church to begin giving cinematic imprimaturs, few films would be better qualified to receive one than ‘Vito Bonafacci’, writer-director John Martoccia’s meditative-and theologically impeccable - exploration of Scripture-based doctrine and spirituality. ‘Vito Bonafacci’ will certainly reinforce faith in the devout and those with yearnings for the sacred... Religious educators will also welcome the movie as an apt and pleasant instrument in the catechetical instruction of teenagers or adults.

In a world fixated on bombast, ‘Vito Bonafacci’ offers a quiet haven for meaningful meditation.
