Movie Reviews

A profoundly moving, beautiful story
Marga Fabian | CT, USA | 12/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"How can you fuse in one love, death, life, faith and make them all equally desirable? Watch this movie, and you will look differently at your child, or childhood, at mothers and at how faith manifests itself.
Kathartic and sobering.
I have watched it 4 times and cried with pain and joy more fused together than I am able to express. With every viewing one becomes more aware of the symbolism.
You can't miss it."
Original is better
Richard Byers | Astoria, OR United States | 12/25/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is good. But I have to say I much prefer the original Spanish version made in 1955. It has a much more simple story, straight to the heart. This Italian remake adds quite a bit that is completely unnecessary to the telling of an already wonderful story. Check out the original and I think you'll agree."
Very sweet movie

"I've seen both this version and the 1955 version and I think that both are very good and worth watching. There is also alot of humor in this one. The only precaution I would advise to people, especially parents, is that there is one scene where it shows a woman breastfeeding baby Marcellino, and it does show that, so if you aren't comfortable having younger audiences see that, fast forward that very short scene. Otherwise, I highly recommend it!"
