Item Description...
To deal with the leprosy problem in the Hawaiian Islands in 1872, sufferers were relentlessly exiled to Molokai, a barren isle off the coast. There they lived in miserable surroundings, abandoned by the outside world. To alleviate their fate, Father Damien was the first priest to go to Molokai. His bishop's last words were that "he must not touch anyone."

Little by little, Damien earned the trust of the lepers, and eventually, his appeals for nuns and supplies resonated throughout the world, much to the displeasure of his superiors.

Even when Damien got sick himself, his energy did not abate, and he carried on working for the well-being of his "fellow lepers" to the end. When he crumbled during Mass, he was taken to his own hospital to die. All the residents gathered at the entrance to pray for their Father.

Just Added This To My Cart After Watching It On Netflix Streaming  May 1, 2010
Wow!! Didn't know this movie existed until viewing it over Netflix on the Wii. Got to have it, so am putting it in my this site Cart for ordering. Too bad it isn't in Blu-Ray, for the scenery and music are top notch. But when it does come, I'll also buy that version too. Fabulous movie I can watch over and over again.
Liked it!  Mar 22, 2010
Great movie. Good scenery, good message. Fr. Damien was recently cannonized so that makes this movie quite relevant for today. Thank goodness for modern medicine; but unfortunately there are still places that have problems similar to this.
The Life of a Saint  Dec 24, 2009
"Father Damien" is an excellent biopic on the Roman Catholic priest who agreed to live his life among the lepers of Molokai in Hawai'i. The film will cause viewers to ask themselves many questions about the value of sacrifice for one's fellow human beings.

There are many positive aspects of "Father Damien." The entire cast is excellent; David Wenham, as Damien, rises to the challenge of portraying an extraordinary figure. The film is beautiful; it seems as though it would be easy to film a beautiful movie in Hawai'i, but the filmmakers exceeded my expectations. The wonderful Hawaiian music that the filmmakers used helps provide the right atmosphere.

It is possible to mention a few drawbacks. At two hours, the film is a bit long; I thought that the filmmakers could have cut at least fifteen minutes without losing much impact. "Father Damien" covers both Damien's activities on Molokai and the (disappointing) actions of the Roman Catholic Church in Honolulu; at times, the filmmakers' attempts to tell two stories at once can be a bit jarring to the viewer.

I've never been entirely comfortable with the idea of elevating people to sainthood. But, if anyone deserves such an honor, certainly Father Damien qualifies. I recommend "Father Damien"; whatever your religious beliefs, the film will inspire you and cause you to think.
Inspiring  Dec 21, 2009
I first saw this movie many years ago, and I was so impressed with it that I wanted to buy my own copy, but for many years I couldn't track one down.

This is one of those movies which seems to go by largely unnoticed although it is fabulous and very uplifting. Everyone I share this movie with agrees that it is a shame it isn't better known.

It tells the story of St. Damian and his time on Molokai living with the lepers, until his death there.

The scenery and music is haunting.

The acting is superb. The actors include Peter O'Toole and Kris Krisofferston, but David Wenham as Damian is unforgettable.

Watching this movie always inspires me to try and be a better person.
Product great but suggest an improvement in process  Nov 11, 2009
I had purchased the DVD as a gift for someone and so the "ship to" address was different from the billing address. I had assumed that the recipient would get information as to who the purchaser was. They did not. I did write to the 3rd party seller who told me that they do not receive this information from this site. I think that it would be an improvement if that information was included so that it could be shared with the ultimate recipient.
