Guadalupe: The Mother of God
Guadalupe does a great job of bringing to a larger audience a story and event that has come to symbolize Mexico. Many people have seen the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe but never realized its origin. This movie show us that amazing origin and also helps us to realize that this image is the only image that we have of the Virgin Mary that she herself has given to us. Every other image you see of her is an artist's rendition of what was described to him. To build the plot, the movie moves a little slowly at first, but then picks up speed as it nears the climax. Unfortunately, some very interesting aspects of the image were covered very quickly, almost as if to simply peek your interest so you'll investigate more. Maybe that's a good thing. I thought that it was great that they had an archeologist investigate so that the scientific questions could be addressed objectively. In the end, I thought it was beautiful to see La Virgen de Guadalupe "touch" this man to help him to see, believe, and heal.
