5.0 out of 5 stars How a Christian Movie Should Be Made February 25, 2007
Format:DVD
I try to include as many spiritual movies in my reviews that I can, as long as they are consistent with traditional Christian values. This movie goes right to the top of the list of Spiritual movies; it is how I think a Christian movie should be made. First, it is an exciting and fascinating story in itself; a 12-year-old boy and girl pledge their love for each other, but are separated. Will they forget their promises to each other, like most kids, or somehow find their way back to each other.

In this movie, we have an unchurched girl, Sarah, who somehow senses the Presence of God in her life. She, like her hero Joan of Arc, clearly wants to live only in ways that are pleasing to God. When she feels she has sinned, knowing of Confession in the Catholic Church, she turns to the local priest. I should interject here that this priest is how a priest should be, and, indeed, he is like most all the priests I've met. (Unlike so much media negative image of Catholic priests.) The way he handles Sarah serves to strengthen her faith. But, all this spiritual element is done so subtly, so naturally and without a hint of preaching, that it really is Christianity by example. I should add that Sarah is not a confirmed Catholic, so Protestants can appreciate the story as much as anyone would.

I don't dare say anything more lest I give away the story, which is a powerful story of simple faith and trust in God. All I have to say is that I have watched thousands of movies, many with spiritual elements, and this is by far the top in general production quality, caliber of acting, and in its story. I have to thank Mel Gibson for showing that there is a real thirst for top-quality Christian movies. If you watch only one spiritual movie this year, make it this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the usual Christian film fare July 1, 2009
By Marie44
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film has a very intense, mysterious plot with a lot of suspense. I liked it, but I'm not sure how to describe it. Sarah and Christopher pledge their love to each other as young teenagers, then Christopher is gone. Sarah, whose hero is Joan of Arc and has visions, wants to remain true to the promise she and Christopher made to one another. Sarah has a very disturbed mother and she tries hard not to be like her in any way, and seeks spiritual guidance from a priest even though she is not Catholic. There are evil influences and distractions and temptations along the way. This film almost seemed allegorical with Sarah as the Church and Christopher as the Christ in how she attempts to stay faithful even when she has no sign Christopher will ever return. The ending is a surprise with scenes that can easily be interpreted with double meanings. On the negative side, some scenes don't flow well, such as the group of teenagers talking about taking a purity pledge and then Sarah and another girl sitting in a hall--it seems something is missing in between. And there is a very violent series of events at night, but it's so dark in the scenes it's difficult to tell what is happening. It's also never quite clear why the grandmother sits and stares and has no reactions to Sarah talking to her. Other than those minor flaws, it is a good movie and the acting is very well done. I especially liked the acting of Sarah in the school play. All in all, I would recommend this film to anyone who would like to see an unusual film with strong Christian messages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!!!! February 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this movie. I was expecting it to be poor quality and not very good but I took a chance and I am glad I did. This movie was about a young girl who saved herself for this one guy for over five years and was given visions from God. I love this movie. Five stars!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, Interesting, Biblically Sound June 15, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This was not like your typical soft, gentle Christian movie. All of those are good, but we need more like this. When a movie is this intense and interesting, it will attract larger audiences and give better visibility to how someone can seek a sincere relationship with God in real world settings.

Developing a relationship with God is unique for everyone because everyone is unique. This movie portrayed a great example of one girl's unique journey developing her relationship with God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something to Ponder July 11, 2006
Format:DVD
I saw this film on the big screen and couldn't get it out of my mind for quite a while afterwards. I bought it recently and have enjoyed viewing it again. It offers an intriguing story of a "good girl" with an almost mystic inner conflict and a "bad guy" who is hauntingly evil. It is one of those films that has more to reveal upon a second viewing. I highly recommend it.

This movie was a waste of time and felt evil. I'd recommend: COURAGEOUS, FIREPROOF, WITHOUT A FATHER, OVERCOME, GRACE CARD, THE ENCOUNTER....just not this one.
