Miracle Under The Inquisition
24 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

Miracle Under The Inquisition, A (1904)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Un Miracle sous l'Inquisition

Mildly entertaining film from the French filmmaker has a woman being burned to death because she was found guilty of being a witch. Afterward the woman reappears as an angel and seeks revenge. The woman turning into an angel and then seeking revenge doesn't seem to go together too well but even with that said this is a fairly entertaining movie. The special effects of the burning were nicely done as was the ending, which is sure to get a laugh. Nothing here is too overly impressive so I'd rank this as a middle ground for the director.
