"Now and Then We Encounter a Symbol That Seems to Embody the Major Hopes and Aspirations of an Entire Society. Such a Master Symbol is Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mexico's Patroness and Empress of the Americas. --Brother John M. Samaha"
Spanish archaeologists Jose Maria and his sister Mercedes travel to Mexico to investigate newly discovered information on the Virgin of Guadalupe. While Jose Maria discusses the phenomenon with experts, Mercedes joins her friend Diego, a handsome Mexican, on a pilgrimage to the Basilica, participating in celebrations along the way. Through these journeys, each learns the history of Mexico and the meaning behind many of its traditions. The story of the 16th century native Mexican, St. Juan Diego, and his encounters with the Virgin is interwoven with the present-day story of Jose Maria, who reassesses his own neglect of his wife and children, and Mercedes, who comes to terms with her desire for a home and family. As these stories unfold, Our Lady of Guadalupe reveals herself to each of the characters, guiding them toward the happiness and serenity they seek. Guadalupe is an epic film that inspires, informs and entertains...and one that should be seen by everyone!

"...[an] engaging drama...[that] has a strong flavor of soap opera -- or, perhaps more accurately, telenovela...  Joe Leydon, Variety

Editor's Note
This epic journey follows a brother-sister archeologist team on their adventures in current day Mexico while a parallel story unfolds in the 16th century.

Professional Reviews

Variety 8 of 10
Simplicity and sincerity are the keynotes of "Guadalupe," a modestly engaging drama inspired by the much-heralded appearance of the Virgin Mary 475 years ago at the hill of Tepeyac near Mexico City. Aimed primarily at Latin American Catholics and others devoted to (or simply intrigued by) the iconic figure known as Our Lady of Guadalupe...Working from an adeptly structured script by vet TV scribe Tessie Gutierrez de Picazo, helmer Santiago Parra nimbly time-trips back and forth between the 16th and 21st centuries, interweaving a reverent account of the miraculous visitation with a contemporary story that pivots on the phenom's enduring effects..."Guadalupe" has a strong flavor of soap opera -- or, perhaps more accurately, telenovela -- when it details how Jose Maria and Mercedes have been immutably shaped by their not entirely happy childhoods. Mercedes now avoids long-term commitments, even while wooed by a handsome colleague, and Jose Maria chronically neglects his wife and children while focused on work. Both need a shot at redemption. Which, of course, they get. - Joe Leydon
