In 1917, three shepherd children living just outside Fatima, Portugal have visions of a lovely lady in a cloud. The anticlerical government wishes to squelch the Church; reports of religious experiences are cause for serious concern. Yet the children stand by their story, and the message of peace and hope the Lady brings. In the last vision, attended by thousands of people, the Lady proves her reality with a spectacular miracle that is seen by everyone present. Based on actual events at Fatima in the summer of 1917.

Angela Clarke was the voice of the Virgin Mary, pitching her voice a bit lower and speaking very slowly. She had done one of the crowd voices in the scene "Let us see the children!", as did Jay Novello. See more »
The narrator opened the scene at Fatima saying, "Here we are in the mountain village of Fatima on Sunday, May 15, 1917". That Sunday was on the 13th of the month, and the lady asked the children to return for six months in succession on the 13th day to the Cova da Iria, as the movie itself indicates. See more »
This movie is fantastic. I would love to see it on DVD someday with some extra features. I'm fairly certain the woman playing Sr. Lucia at the end is the same lady who does the voice of Our Lady throughout the movie.
What is more interesting is that there are only 4 people left alive from the making of this movie--Angela Clark (Lucia's mother), and the three children. Sr. Lucia (the real one) just died on 2-13-05, and Angela Clark is just 5 years behind her. Interesting to note, but not worth much in the long run. I just thought it would be cool to point that out. Maybe they'll have a reunion of the last 4 main characters?
