Fatima is definitely a must-see movie. I appreciated the presentation of the apparitions from Sr. Lucia’s words and not Hollywood’s imaginary storytelling. The children’s spiritual innocence is well presented. I only wish there could’ve been more on the apparitions, the miracles, and (especially) the miracle of the sun and afterwards. Thoroughly thought provoking on one’s faith!

Fatima largely works as a drama, in part because it's so earnestly presented, and unexpectedly timely in dealing with loss. If that adds up to something less than a miracle, given the aforementioned challenges, it's not an inconsequential achievement.

Fatima has excellent production design. A lot of care went into getting the period details right. There’s some beautiful cinematography and decent performances all around. It’s just all so mushy and predictable. Faith vs. science, tragedy testing one’s faith – those themes have been explored before, more enticingly. Pontecorvo turns a fascinating bit of history into a by-the-numbers affair, and that may be Fatima’s greatest sin.

In the flourishing genre of faith-based movies, this is one of the better efforts we’ve seen.
