Title: Very nice Fatima movie
Post by: Lyubov on January 04, 2013, 03:05:56 AM
The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima is a movie made in 1952. It isn't 100% accurate, but definitely has a nice message. I bawl every time I watch it, and even men have been known to shed a tear or two.  ;D

It is on YouTube in installments.

Was this movie originally in black and white? Or is that a different one?

the new one the 13th day (which is ok) is in black and white and some splashes of color.
I still prefer the original movie. More traditional.
Here is the trailer for the other one.

I tried to arrange a screening of that new one at my NO high school. Unfortunately, that didn't come to fruition.

I do remember the older one from a while back. It shows everyone at Fátima waving white hankerchiefs.

A very moving scene!

And to think, this is what stands in Fatima today, the 4th largest Catholic Church in the world:

I try to watch this one at least once a year.  It does have some cheesy acting in parts, but overall a well done movie considering the low budget.  The scene that always gets me is when Jacinta tells her Mom and those around that she and Francisco are going to die soon.  Very touching scene.  (BTW, I'm hoping I didn't need to preface this with a Spoiler Alert, especially since the movie's been out for 60 years).

I sincerely hope that "spoiler alerts" aren't needed for details pertaining to the apparition at Fatima!

Alas, cheesy acting would be a dealbreaker for me. I sometimes like watching bad movies for the express purpose of making fun of them, but if it's a religious movie, I can't handle it if I feel like I'm watching a grade school production.

Well, if I'm not mistaken, it is a Warner Brothers film, so it's not that bad, at least not grade school production bad.  I don't think the acting detracts too much from the movie itself, and I still think it is a worthwhile film to see.  Plus, don't just take my word for it; others may think the acting is superb.

I was going to mention that some of the acting is slightly cheesy, but decided against it. It's slight 1950s cheesiness.
