Did You Know?

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 »
Revealing mistakes: Just before the first vision occurs, Sherry Jackson picks up a little lamb, and holds it all the way through the vision. Frontal shots (from the lady's POV, showing the kids looking up) show her holding an actual lamb. Shots from the rear (showing the three children before the bush with the lady on it) show Sherry holding an obvious wooden or plastic model.See more »
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?

A Meaningful Film, 13 November 2004
Author: Wick Belanger from Los Angeles

This is a splendid, meaningful film in the spiritual genre which details the visions claimed by three Portuguese children during the height of tumultuous events in Europe preceding the rise of communism in Russia. The film briefly underscores the persecution of the Catholic Church in Portugal at the turn of the last century. Enough humor, vis a vis the fictitious character "Hugo" the local village thief, inebriate and film-flam artist, is injected into the movie which offsets the sombre subject matter. The children are at first disbelieved, and the local priest fears further persecution at the hands of the local authorities should the details of the children's visions come to light. The children are hounded by the authorities who attempt to compel them to recant, all to no avail. Hugo tries to make money out of the venture by selling 'relics' to the thousands of pilgrims who flock to the site in search of a miracle. The film concludes with the 'vision of the sun' whirling and descending to the earth during a violent rainstorm, after which it returns to its designated spot in the heavens. A fine family film. Well cast and thoroughly delightful to watch.
