For Greater Glory - Five stars

For Greater Glory captured my heart for Mexico and its people who longed for religous freedom. Both young and old characters inspire viture and greatness. Antonio Banderas' part as general was brilliant. Violence was disturbing- particularly because it is rooted in history- but not grateous. I can't stop thinking about Mexico's story of the last century. Five stars!!!!
