Movie review: The Inn of the Sixth Happiness

So, for some reason I noticed Ingrid Bergman has noticeable nose. I watched the film, The Inn of the Sixth Happiness, a take on the life of Gladys May Aylward, portrayed by the actress, Ingrid Bergman. Maybe her nose stuck out to remind me it really doesn’t matter what body shape we have, it’s what we do with the body and mind that makes a difference and Ingrid Bergman did an outstanding job of acting.

Gladys May Aylward (1902-1970) was a British evangelical Christian who felt compelled to do her missionary work in China. I’m sure the film, The Inn of the Sixth Happiness was built loosely on reality, as all movies are, but it is worth seeing.

Created in 1958, The Inn of the Sixth Happiness is two-and-half hours long, so be prepared, but the storyline touches on selflessness, courage, and knowing one’s place in the world.

Knowing our place in the world comes with knowing our self as God knows us. Gladys May Aylward knew God made her honest, loving, giving, and strong. This attitude carried her to China where she adopted children and adapted to another culture where she learned to help them as they understood.
