Two priests, Pep and Bruno, become fed up with preaching day after day to a congregation that is not present. They have truly hit bottom, and will do anything necessary to bring the community back into the church. After a few failed attempts, Bruno goes on a soul searching mission by himself in the woods. He comes across a false prophet who claims to be a priest, and offers a vial of miraculous holy water. The holy water reveals itself to be a concoction extrapolated from the souls of lunatics, and ultimately causes the main priest to have horrific visions. We are left wondering what happens to the church, as well as the people who have now come seeking a vision induced by the potion of a mad man. Written by Johnny Fulci

Did You Know?


The Archdiocese of Boston tried to stop the film from happening. In a letter to Roberto Bentivegna, Bishop O'Malley described the script as being "blasphemous", as "not reflecting the teachings of the Catholic doctrine" and sent out a circular letter to the churches within the Archdiocese asking for the boycott of the production. Luckily Father Vincenzo Rosato had a sense of humor and allowed his church to be used. See more »

The satirical look at catholicism we've been waiting for!
26 May 2005 | by (Vermont, United States) – See all my reviews

Roberto's witty direction mixed with Yen's beautiful imagery make this short a must see!

Roberto has created a short that truly takes a catholic, or any other religious person, outside to see what they sometimes may look like to the world.

"The Mirakle", takes us into a church that has, like others, come below exceptable means of income and attendance to stay a float. But, Bruno (priest) has come up with an excellent plan under the guidance of a preacher from a dream.

The whole town is buzzing about,

"The Mirakle"
