Me too, I loved the theme song... when I was twelve
1 July 2008 | by niperusSee all my reviews

I must have been about 12 when Miracle of Love was on Finnish television. The story itself was touching enough, and the theme song... I tried humming it for days so I wouldn't forget the melody. Eventually I did, of course. I never thought I's have the slightest chance of finding the song, but now in the age of internet anything is possible. Does anyone know of a recording of the theme song?

I totally recommend the film to anyone interested in autism and other neurological dysfunctions. As well as to all softies. I remember it being clearly a television film - today it would probably be called a "Hallmark-type" of film. For me it was the first time to learn about autism, and I think it gave me quite the right impression - judging from what I know now. None of the easy labels so often given.
