Movie Reviews

A fine film that promotes cultural diversity and sensitivity
03/09/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film, set in World War II France, deals with a group of Christian students who have the reality of the Holocaust thrust upon them when three Jewish children appear at their boarding school in need of a haven from the Nazis. The nun who runs the school must deal with the danger of the situation while the children must confront their won prejudice towards Jews. The plot is fast paced enough to hold the interest of Jr. High students while never sacrificing the deeper issues of cultural diversity and the Holocaust. While originally made for T.V., this film provides a great teaching tool for students learning about World War II, prejudice, and decision making in the fact of peer pressure and danger. While some scenes are intense, there is nothing objectionable for Jr. High age students."

"I first saw this movie in high school, and I've never forgotten it. Three Jewish children flee the Nazis and must take refuge at a small Catholic school in France. Strong performances from Loretta Swit and the rest of the cast. A wonderful message about tolerance. Viewers of all faiths will appreciate the beauty of the miracle of Hanuukah. Truly inspiring."
Great film for all, especially during Hannukah and Christmas

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Heart-warming tale of a French Catholic school who, with the help of their teacher, Sr. Gabriella (Loretta Swit), harbors Jewish children during World War II. Story takes place during Hannukah."
A childrens movie

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am 24. As a child,I grew up wathing Miracle at Moreaux along with my younger brother. It was a wonderful experience because the movie is very clean and innocent but at the same time captured my attention every time I watched it. It helps people of all ages learn history in a very impactful way. I hova now purchased the movie for my collection and to show to my children in the future."
