The Title "Question of Faith" says it All

"I originally saw this movie at the Sundance Film Festival when it was first released and the name was "Blessed Art Thou". Being a Catholic I was very open-minded to the contents of the movie and realize there is quite a bit of symbolism taking place. I enjoyed the move. But having the opportunity to speak with the producer and the cast of the film made it more enjoyable. The insight they gave me was very helpful to understand where they were coming from and why the movie was made. The producer/director is Catholic but no longer practices. As he said because of all the changes in the church he "questioned his faith". I feel that one has to try to understand what the point they are trying to get across. One of the points is that in today's society, we have a hard time accepting a miracle. We want an explaination for the miracle, instead of just accepting it for what it is. I would recommend anyone who believes to see the movie. I know the acting is not up for an Oscar, but the real purpose for making the movie it what one should enjoy."
Encouraging & uplifting

"I found this movie very encouraging. A few years ago I was trying to recover from several health problems and was glad to find a movie that showed natural methods of healing. I'm a christian & believe God has many methods He uses to show us natural ways to heal along with prayer. This movie showed options such as nutrition, exercise, visual imagery, accupuncture, etc. I healed from all my ailments that were considered "incurable" by natural methods and movies like this helped keep me focused and uplifted while I was healing."
Two movies, one review

"I was looking for QUESTION OF FAITH, which seems to be only on VHS and out of print. I had found it helpful, informative and inspirational a few years ago, and look forward to getting a copy somehow.
The Amazon reviews refering to the monastery and catholicism belong, I believe, to A QUESTION OF FAITH, which sounds like quite a different movie."
Two different movies

"The rating above is for another movie by the same title about a young woman diagnosed with cancer, but who overcomes it. This is not the same movie, nor is it the movie I was looking for. It's with Sam Niell and Ann Archer and is a wonderful, heartwarming, uplifting story."
