Storyline

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. Written by Molly Malloy <mailcall@bluemarble.net>

Trivia

Rather than letting Susan Whitney speak her own lines in the final scene, when she appears with stage makeup to age her appearance so as to appear as Lucia did at age 47, the filmmakers dubbed in the very recognizable voice of Angela Clarke who also dubs the Virgin Mary. See more »

Goofs

When Arturo Dos Santos comes to pick up the children at their home, he drops an ear of corn. As the view shifts to the rear of the scene, he immediately drops the same ear of corn again. See more »

Quotes

Father Ferreira: Why do you hold back, child? What else did the Blessed Mother say?
Lúcia Abóbora dos Santos: I never said she was the Blessed Mother!
Jacinta Marto: But we did see a lovely lady in a cloud! Who else could it be?

Faith Encouraging
28 June 2003 | by (Philadelphia, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is conducive to one's faith. It serves as a reminder of why one chooses to practice Christianity. It also helps to encourage people to make good decisions in the face of adversity. I give this film a 10.
