5.0 out of 5 stars The Miracle - dvd format long overdue May 31 2010
Format:VHS Tape
I got the VHS copy of the movie, I bought many years ago.
It is a wonderful, love story with Carol Baker and Roger Moore,set in the Napoleonic time period.
Carol Baker plays a young postulant at a convent, who must decide between her love of God or the handsome soldier, played by Roger Moore.
In leaving the convent to seek her soldier love, the statue of the Madonna steps down to take her place. Things begin to happen.
In her search, the young postulant encounters other loves along the way, only to find them meet an untimely death.
To prevent the death of her soldier, she loves, she must make the ultimate decision to return to take her vows at the convent.
During the ensuing battle, the young soldiers life is miraculously saved.
There is lot more to this movie to be said.
Time for a dvd release of this great movie!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars AN UNUSUAL DRAMA June 16 2002
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
Based upon a well known stage production of the same name, this is an unusual film about a postulant nun, who has a life defining decision to make. It is a choice between a secular life and a religious one. Her decision is to have consequences for many.
The film takes place in Spain, sometime in the early nineteenth century. At the Convent of the Valley of Milaflores stands a statue of the Madonna. Legend has it that since the statue has been there, the region has been prosperous. This is the convent where seventeen year old Teresa (Carroll Baker) is a postulant nun. One day, a group of English soldiers, sent to help Spain ward off invasion by the French, come by the convent. Led by young, impossibly handsome Captain Michael Stuart (Roger Moore), who cuts a dashing figure, Teresa falls in love at first sight. He, too, is smitten by her. As luck would have it, they fall in love, and Teresa agrees to meet him in town in order to get married.
Unfortunately, timing is everything. Teresa gets into town just as the French are invading. Believing that Michael has been killed, she leaves to wander about the world, after joining a band of gypsies. In the meantime, the statue of the Madonna literally leaves her pedestal, becoming flesh and blood. No one in the convent knows that Teresa is gone, as the Madonna has taken Teresa's place and assumed her visage.
Meanwhile, Teresa becomes a famous gypsy singer and dancer, traveling around the country and having adventures. Whenever a man falls in love with her, however, the recipe is usually disaster. One day, her faith is renewed, when she gets her dearest wish. She then finds herself making a promise that causes her to find herself back at square one. It is a life defining decision. It is a miracle.

5.0 out of 5 stars the Divine Mercy can touch us, too Aug. 6 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
When I was a young boy I remember seeing this film in black and white and was fascinated that the world of the supernatural could take such a personal interest in ordinary mortal life. I also was intrigued by its plausibility since it is based on an ongoing legend. I think the movie is best seen and taken in with profit as a sort of modern parable that can go on speaking to us. Although beautiful with a bit of sentiment yet it presents all of us as a blur of good and evil, and not just so cleanly one or the other, and in need of redemption. And....that redemption is in itself something wonderful and a marvel. Both of the chararcters, Teresa and her beloved played by Roger Moore demonstrate that we all in one way or another seek that Divine Love...whether in its human face or in its purity.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Miracle....Truly Is April 22 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this film when I was about 6 years old and have been looking for it on video ever since.
A bit draggy during Theresa's (Caroll Baker) gypsy days...other wise thoroughly engaging, and thought provoking.
I remember, as a child, when the Madonna took Theresa's place in the convent, we saw the Madonna's face.....now for some reason, they superimpose Theresa's face over the Madonna's.....dont know why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Entertainment May 15 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of those Hollywood dramas that escaped most peoples attention over the years and I found it hard to get on video and I never seen it on TV. Despite the critics panning of the movie (religious tones etc)it has superb production values,great score and the storyline broken into vignettes make it a must see. I'll hold on to this video for future viewing and hopefully it will be released sometime on DVD

5.0 out of 5 stars The Miracle Sept. 9 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I was 9 years old when my uncle took me to see that movie. It made repeat showings for a few years after that in my little town of Bristol, Ct. I loved that movie, in fact i memorized the entire lines of everyone in that film. I don't know why, but it's been my favorite all my life. I own a copy now and still get choked up during parts of it, and the music is the best. A real heart-renching score.

I was only 9 years old when I saw this movie in the theater. After that, I watched it devotedly every year on TV (no video yet at that time). Our country played this movie only during lent season (Holy Week). So, every year I waited for them to play it on TV. It's one of the best romantic and unforgettable movie in my lifetime. Roger Moore and Carol Bakker were superb.
