This is a wonderful family movie spanning the life of a priest who is a missionary in a country that doesn't want him - at first. It gives the viewer much to think about in how we treat and judge others. Highly recommended!

A.J. Cronin is a great story teller, and this movie version of his book of the same name is worth watching. It is a story of a man who is never really sure of his role in life. So, he just goes forward, a step at a time with great humility. For all of his uncertainty, he accomplishes much. Once asked about his role as the priest in the movie, Gregory Peck replied: ''I was sincere.'' He was, and so is the movie. Taken in the context of movies like the Sand Pebbles and Empire of the Sun, it also gives some insight into the life of Europeans in China leading up to World War II.
