In the 5th century, the Roman Empire was collapsing and barbarians threatened civilization. In Britain, a teenager named Patrick was living a comfortable life as the son of a government official. Despite being part of the Roman Catholic Church, his faith didn't mean anything to him until he was kidnapped by pirates at the age of 16 and enslaved at the edge of the known world - Ireland. For 6 years Patrick was forced to work as a shepherd and was driven to the brink of starvation. It was there that he turned to his Christian faith and through divine intervention managed to escape. He was reunited with his family in Britain only to have a prophetic dream calling him to take Christianity back to the land of his captivity.

    Excellently explained and acted with very credible sources

  • Wonderful!! by 10

    A fantastic docu-film which teaches so much; both in matters of the faith and of course the life of St Patrick.

    I am no saying that I agree totally with the interpretations, but it is well done. I enjoyed it.

  • Docudrama of the life of St Patrick by 6

    Part documentary, part reconstructionary drama, this film relies mainly on St Patrick's own written account of his life, miraculously preserved. A little ponderous but a creditable attempt to present his life. Interesting if you're interested, otherwise probably not.

  • Documentary On Life Of St Patrick by 7

    A biographical account of the life of Patrick, with religious overtones. A pretty well made documentary, though it can get melodramatic at times. An accurate picture of a patron saint.
