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

A nicely rounded piece despite the flaws
3 December 2006 | by Kim HarrisSee all my reviews

Don't expect a deep and meaningful film but this film is good to watch and I even took the trouble to buy a copy. The performances are good and, despite some flaws in the dialogue, quite convincing within the limitations of a simple story.

Maria Pitillo is the stronger of the two leads but William McNamara also does a good job and the supporting parts are ably fulfilled by Tom Conti and Ian Bannen although the latter's Italian Accent is never entirely convincing.

At a time when so many films are deliberately unpleasant, this is an old fashioned and unashamedly "heart warming" piece, despite its flaws. Enjoy it for what it is and don't take it too seriously.
