A beautiful tale.
27 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

It is amazing such poetry some directors can create with so little money and The Miracle is just that. The kids may seem obnoxious to some people but they are just teenagers. Beverly D´Angelo is very well as the mysterious lady and the music fits perfectly into the whole movie. I´d love to watch it again if I could find it on tape.
