WATCH: Trailer for Man of God film on St. Nektarios released (+VIDEO)

Greece, March 10, 2021   

The official trailer for the long-awaited film Man of God, about St. Nektarios of Aegina, was released yesterday.

Watch the trailer below:

Production company Simeon Entertainment describes the film: “Exiled unjustly, convicted without trial, slandered without cause, yet his love for God and his fellow men conquered all. Man of God depicts the tribulations of Saint Nektarios of Aegina, as he bears the unjust hatred of his enemies, while preaching the Word of God and wishing good to everyone.”

The film was made in honor of the 100th anniversary of the repose of the great 19th-20th-century saint, who departed to the Lord in 1920.

It was directed by Yelena Popovic, who was captivated by the life of St. Nektarios when she read it in 2012, and features Hollywood legend Mickey Rourke as a man who is miraculously healed by St. Nektarios. In an interview last year, Rourke spoke about his faith, his experience with miracles, and why he accepted a role in Man of God.

Filming took place in various places associated with the life of St. Nektarios, including in Aegina and the hospital where he took his last breath. Today there is a shrine in Aretaeio Hospital room 2 where St. Nektarios departed to the Lord, with a vigil lamp continually burning before his icon.

This movie is a screening of Sotos Chondropoulos book 'Saint Nektarios The Saint of our Century' (translated in several languages) and Yelena Popovic should mention that

Whoever is responsible for this movie has done a TERRIBLE job of distribution. Thousands of people looking to buy one seems to have a clue how to do so. Not sure what the point of the trailer is if it's not available. Typical Orthodox organization! So sad.

This was one movie I would purchase for all my children to have. Will we have the opportunity to purchase this movie? Moving and the exact example of how we should all be. Pray and intercede on our behalf oh St. Nektarios.

My extended family and I all have such admiration and gratitude for St. Nektarios! We felt touched with the stories we learned about his life and felt blessed while asking for his intercessions when our beloved mom fought her cancer battle. I can’t wait to see this film!

One major problem with films like this is that you can never capture the "aura" of a Saint on film.... no actor or director is that good enough !!!
