Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Miracle in Rome (Milagro en Roma) is the old-fashioned title for this new-fashioned Italian spiritual drama. Twelve years after the death of his daughter, Frank Ramirez makes preparations to move her body to a new cemetery. When the casket is opened, the girl is discovered in a state of perfect preservation, with nary a sign of decomposition. Ramirez considers this to be a miracle, but is discouraged in this belief by the local clergy. The rest of the film is an ideological tug of war between the Vatican and Ramirez's less pragmatic fellow villagers. Miracle in Rome is one of several faith-affirming Spanish/South American films inspired by the written works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
