What is the movie about?

Soldier, sinner, saint, take a look at the life of Iñigo De Loyola, played by Muñoz (The Devil's Backbone), and see how one man's failure led to his greatest achievement. De Loyola was once a brash and womanizing warrior at a time when the nation of Spain is in the middle of political uprisings. His life forever changed when a series of very difficult scenarios came crashing down on his life. From gaining a hard time walking due to an injury brought upon by a cannonball, being accused of being an agent of the secret society known as The Illuminati, to being driven to suicide, watch as one man struggles to find meaning in his life again, and he found it through God! Today, he is known as St. Ignacio De Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus, and get to know as well the many people he encountered, including Xanti, played by Godino (The Secret In Their Eyes), Father Sanchez, played by Perillán (Anna) and Montes, played by Ocio (A Matador's Mistress).

Produced by Jesuit Communications Philippines (JesCom), IGNACIO DE LOYOLA was shot on location over two months in Spain.

Well this is obviously one of our shorter promotions. Up next, we'll have something that you are all too familiar with. Independence Day just passed, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't celebrate. Plus, lots and lots of aliens! Peace out, Dateliners!


  1. really a down to earth movie!!!! ignacio de loyola witnessed to us on how to be FULLY HUMAN!!!

    1. It looks like it really is a fantastic movie. It is not often we see a movie about the lives of saints these days. It is a good alternative from all the trends of mainstream cinema.
