Cannes, 3 April 2012. The miniseries MARY has scored record ratings on RAI Uno.

April on prime time. Lux-President and Executive Producer Mathilde Bernabei commented: “Regarding the big competition in the fragmented TV market, MARY scored with 8.3 and 7.2 million viewers on Sunday and Monday extraordinary ratings and proved as a true TV-event.” Directed by Giacomo Compiotti (“Doctor Zhivago”) MARY depicts the story of the young virgin mother, who soon after she got engaged to Joseph, understands that she is to give birth to the Son of God. Her faith gives her the strength to accept what seems impossible. When her son Jesus grows up to be a rebel, she understands that she has to overcome her concept of motherhood and accept Jesus' death. MARY (2x90’) is distributed by Beta Film.
