Storyline

Maggie travels to Italy with great faith, as her last hope to heal her terminal illness, and meets Mike, an atheist concert pianist who helps her along her way. Ironically even the church itself doesn't believe in the healing powers of the statue, but Maggie's faith is so great it changes the life of everyone around her. Written by Anonymous

Whatever happened to Maria Pitillo, anyway?
11 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

A boring and allegedly romantic drama in which Maria Pitillo is diagnosed with a terminal illness and travels to Italy to get cured by a weeping statue. William McNamara is thoroughly charmless as a pianist also on his way to Italy, and the rest you can figure out for yourself.

What could have been a sweet film is instead a heavy-handed, stodgy lump that needed a far lighter touch than director John Hough displays here. The movie has a decent cast (I've always got time for Roddy McDowall) but is made bearable only by Pitillo, who's a ray of light in the surrounding banality, giving this thing what little magic it has despite having to break open an endless pile of fortune cookies as she wades through the dialogue. She's really lovely in this.

Otherwise, yawn.
