i have seen this film on DVD, i was in Lourdes in 2005 and saw Bernadette in the cinema. It was lovely but i couldn't see Bernadettes passion over there as it was in French but no English subtitles, however my aunt bought th DVD in Lourdes and when we got home we watched it. I thought it was beautiful, a wonderful film. The facts were accurate and not over dramatized at all. I think it was lovely to see the french version of a song of Bernadette as it makes it more real, i also like the song of Bernadette but i think the newer films may appeal to children because there in co lour. I also like the way when you are watching the new films that you don't actually see the blessed mother you imagine our lady, standing there in the white robe with the blue girdle. When I went back to Lourdes this year i watched Bernadette again in the cinema, what a wonderful film and so is Bernadette's Passion, i could not believe it's 16 years old, it looks as if it was made recently. They are definitely films that will never age. I get a funny feeling just thinking about Lourdes, what a wonderful place, thank god for it!
