The Plot

Father Pio from Pietralcina’s life, St. Pio, is visualized through quick, cinema like flashes, that, faithful to the official historical sources, describe it, make it usable, donate it in an extraordinary way:the angels’ eyes, always present.

Beside them demoniac creatures alternate, majestic men, celestial figures that bring to light that, that can not be seen: the “invisible” of Francesco Forgione’s life.

A boy like many, of a delicate constitution, fragile, with anxiety, fears, anguish; but rich with an urge looked for and wanted, towards goodness, the good, beauty and cleanliness. He falls in love with God’s love to which he makes room within himself. A love which he cannot live without anymore and demanding fights and sacrifices. He is faithful to the invitation of the Majestic Man, as he himself calls him, to fight against a “very tall man with a horrible face”. He is offered a crown in change, and then another one even more precious, it’s made of gold and has the shape of an aureole. The Majestic Man will put it on his head if he fights to the end.

The young man, who will take the name of father Pio continues his earthly vicissitudes through a pitiless fight due to the particular feeling that ties him to the Majestic Man.

Father Pio’s quivering soul is made visible in a dancer who, in a touching choreography, leaves the body and dances a moving “inner dialogue” as if in front of a mirror. His guardian angel’ s eyes, whom he tenderly calls “my little angel”, look at him sweetly, lovingly, and always with the fear that he might lose himself, or not feel his presence any longer, or that he might decide not to listen to him or meet him as usually happens during the ecstasies. We live the angel’s trepidations together with him as well as his love for Father Pio, that splendidly reflects the love of God.

The Heaven opens to us, the invisible becomes visible, the impossible becomes possible in this young countryman who becomes famous in the Heaven for following a voice we are all given, a voice he has the docility to listen to: “Ubi est Deus tuus?”.

We see him, at the end of his life, exhausted, slumped on an armchair, his head bowed, while his soul abandons his body and his angel, in love with him, can finally caress, embrace, touch, accompany him, now certain that their love will be “ a flutter of wings” for ever light of God.

Carlo Tedeschi
