"Miracle in Rome"
1988
Directed by Lisandro Duque Naranjo

Called "a small miracle itself" by the New York Times, Miracle in Rome tells the story of Margarito Duarte, a man whose seven-year-old daughter dies suddenly. Upon visiting her grave 12 years later, Margarito finds his daughter's body just as he had left it. His fellow townspeople call the event a miracle, but the town bishop wants the girl reburied. Based on an original story by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who also co-wrote the screenplay. Spanish with English subtitles.
76 minutes.


Guest Comments

From:  "Chris Heald"

"This is a film I have seen once during a BBC season. It has left a flavour in my mind, a memory of something at once gripping and hilarious, tragic and uplifting. I felt as if I stopped breathing for the whole film, and could only get my breath when it had finished. The story of a man whose daughter dies mysteriously, is buried and then found, miraculously perfect ten years later when the graveyard is redeveloped is not one that I expected even to watch, I was flipping channels and came across it by accident. Despite what might seem like an upsetting theme for any parent, the film just sings with positive lifeforce. I would buy it like a shot if I could find a copy. I have only recently discovered that it was written by the author of "Love in the time of Cholera". It is an unforgettable, life-enhancing film."
