Not accurate enough

TO ANYONE THAT TRULY KNOWS THE MESSAGE OF FATIMA THIS WOULD BE VERY DISAPPOINTING.
But if you have no clue about Fatima, you may like it.
I have read the book of Fatima in Lucia’s Own Words and in my opinion this movie leaves out too many important messages from Our Lady.
Our Lady is too often poorly paraphrased and misquoted.
The movie is more focused on Lucia’s relationship with her mother than with the Mother of God.
They also portray the children’s personalities poorly....…they were much more confident and faithful than they are portrayed here and willing to die to keep the secret!.... yet they always show Lucia not knowing what to say.
They show the Blessed Mother telling Lucia that she would be her messenger for “love and peace”… But our Lady said to pray and make sacrifices … It’s such a watered down version of the message of Fatima.
I recommend The 13th Day movie instead which has a much more accurate portrayal.
I give it 2 stars just because it’s at least an effort to share the message of Fatima.

This story does not represent the full truth of Fatima
Verified purchase
Sorry, I was disappointed by this movie. They failed to detail the events and honestly, the whole message of Fatima. It wasn't about peace, love. and understanding. They left all the relevant parts out and focused mostly on familial issues, as another reviewer said. I have read a great deal about this and can't even begin to tell the omissions. For one the children were threatened with death(by boiling oil) because the would not reveal the secrets they were told, not to recant the visions. too many other things were left out to even bother watching. You want the real story, go read some good catholic books on the subject, not this drivel. Plus the Hollywood version of the miracle was done better in the 1952 movie, but nothing compared to the witness testimony about the real thing.

A beautiful portrayal of an amazing event
Verified purchase
Just finished watching Fatima. This was a beautiful portrayal of our Catholic faith and how important prayers and sacrifices are to the salvation of souls. Our Lady’s message is simple, “pray the rosary everyday for peace in our world.”
The acting is amazing (younger Lucia especially) and the film overall portrays the divine in such a natural way. Knowing the story of Fatima, you can see how much suffering the seers experienced at such a young age. I especially loved the simplicity of Our Lady gently walking across the earth in her bare feet just before she presents herself to the children. This was so powerful!
The only criticism I would give has nothing to do with the acting, but possibly the streaming quality. The scenes where it is night time or where there is less light can barely be made out. The scenes aren’t bright enough to see what is happening. I don’t know why this is? Overall, I think this is such a quality film that should be viewed by all, especially for our time! Ave Maria!

Must watch
This film is based on live events and is intended to inspire the world as our lady intended.. as our lord intended. Some people here on amazon rated the streaming service and not the actual film. Shame on them. They do not understand how the enemy works to discourage others into not learning the truth. I would suggest you watch the film as it will surley show you the intent of our faith. GOD BLESS YOU. SANCTA MARIA ORA PRO NOBIS

Actual events documented 100 years ago, a beautiful soundtrack (thank you Mr. Bocelli), and an important message for all to seek peace and love through prayer and sacrifice for others.

Authentic feel, faithful to the events.
Verified purchase
So many religious movies feel sub-par in production values, hence the 5 stars. This is well done in acting, directing and cinematography, but not supreme. At two hours some valuable details were omitted, for example, in the historical account, the children were subjected to psychological torture of great cruelty by the authorities. The "Miracle of the Sun" gave a good impression of how people felt, but didn't match up to contemporary descriptions; in these days of CGI this was a bit weak. The faith of the children, their humility, commitment to prayer and penance rang true. Also, the confusion, conflict and social difficulties they faced matched the history I have read.
