Good film for family and anyone wanting a good story
2 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a film about a man who one day discovers he can miraculously heal people by touching them, after having a fall from a roof. The film shows just what it would be like to be a healer, and in the case of Buddy, it is not without its cost. He feels dizzy and faint after healing people. Plus there is the frenzy of locals who want healing, who surround him in a shop and are so desperate to be healed they offer cash. He heals a couple of people and then retreats outside as he cannot bear it any longer.

It very much reminds me of Jesus Christ, who was surrounded by masses of people wanting to be healed, and at times just wanted to get away from them all. At one point, Buddy goes to see his local church minister, who tells him that the healing ability is a gift from God.

Buddy eventually discovers a woman who can heal, although when he meets her, she claims to be someone else and that the woman he seeks died.

I don't want to give too much away of the plot, but it does have a happy ending. The film made me feel good, and also made me think about what it would be like to be a healer, to become an instant celebrity or in demand because of the great gift.

God does give gifts to people, maybe even sometimes the ability to heal. This film shows what it would be like, especially for a person who does not know how to handle such a gift. It is a great responsibility, and also a burden that Buddy that must learn to deal with.

In the end Buddy figures out what to do, in an ending that gives hope. The old man, Buddy's adopted father, has cancer and had refused healing from Buddy. But I think that the ending showed that he was going to be healed, because Buddy was then in control of his ability.
