Guadalupe: The Mother of God

by Javier on 4/8/2008

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. Read More

Great Movie On Many Levels

on 5/24/2013

A great movie for all to see. Provides an accurate look at one of the most reveared images & her impact on the Mexican people. If you do not understand the language, subtitles are available. Recommend watching twice, once with the sub-titles so u know what's going on, and once without, so u can enjoy the beauty of the film. Read More

Product Overview

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!

ReviewSource Variety
Review 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.
