Movie Reviews

Quadalupe Disappointing
Daniel J. Voiku | La Crosse, WI, USA | 01/19/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Anyone drawn to this film by its promise to reveal the many mysteries of the image left on Juan Diego's tilma is likely to be disappointed because the movie's emphasis falls far more heavily on the unification of the factitious family portrayed in the film than it does on the marvels that happened and continue to happen in relation to the apparition of Our Lady in Mexico in 1510. The idea of submerging the documentary element in a modern day story strikes me as a good one; but, sadly, the story overpowers the documentary to the extent that, at best, the movie seems to me capably of touching only the choir.

A more discerning audience would, I suspect, appreciate knowing more about its suggestion that the apparition at Guadalupe was predicted some 1500 years before it happened. Likewise, the film fails to note that the stars as they appear on Our Lady's mantle are presented as they would appear to someone looking down from above them rather than from the earth to the sky above. Neither does it explain its reference to the "photographic" aspect of Our Lady's eyes--nor the significance of the flowers depicted on her tunic....

In sum, it appears to me that the film makers had much less knowledge of the Guadalupe event than they purport to have and that, like the various copies shown of the real image in the film (all of which are inaccurate), their achievement is a pious expression of faith that is sadly in need of discipline.

It reminded me of the amazing miracle

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is amazing. Very well done. It has a parallel story of the Guadalupe miracle and a modern day drama. The drama is about a family searching for archeological evidence about the miracle out of professional curiosity, for the brother and his sister are both archeologist from Spain; at the same time a drama unfolds their deepest childhood wounds which have turned this character into a cold husband and father. In a parallel manner, an ancient writer tells the miracle of Guadalupe allowing you to see it unfold your very eyes. The actress that plays Guadalupe is very young reminding the believer that she was only 16 when she had Jesus."
Great film
D. Jimenez | 02/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great film for all to see. Provides an accurate look at one of the most reveared images and her impact on the Mexican people. If you do not understand the language, subtitles are available. Recommend watching twice, once with the sub-titles so you know what's going on, and once without, so you can enjoy the beauty of the movie."
A perfectly arrange Drama involving daily life's problems, H
A. Prieto | USA | 02/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a Great Family movie that will most definitely get the attention of the following:
The sceptic individual, and history driven intelectuals
The ones who may have lost a sence of traditional family events which support one's identity.
The rest of us who find our daily lives kind of disorganized by many pressures.

Yes, Guadalupe brings together History, Tradition, Scientific proof, and a lof of Faith. It brings the spirit of the MIRACLE into our daily life.
