The apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima.
Providentially, my copy of the film 13th Day arrived today, on October 13, the day Our Lady revealed herself as Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima in 1917 - as well as the anniversary of the great miracle of the sun. No, it is not a feast day - simply an anniversary.
The film is not bad, special effects are quite good - especially as they portray the "secret" of Fatima, which was revealed in three parts. That perhaps is the most impressive sequence in the film, and if I would have seen it before I painted my panel of 'The Secret', I may have changed my composition. The jailed children sequence I found to be excessively long, although wonderfully updated for our times with the skinhead character. The final scene of the miracle was rather well done - wonderful drama - but if memory serves me, the Warner Bros. scene may have been just as good without the CGI. Although I did like the magical, mystical cinematography which just about overlaid every scene in the13th Day, it gave an art-film quality to the production. Interestingly, some of the wooded scenes reminded me of Garabandahl when I visited there in the 1970's.
Anyway - it was a pretty good film - nicely done. The message of Fatima was conveyed quite well. Like my own private experience at Fatima, I personally found the film rather dark and sober - and Our Lady's message was indeed very much on that order - although the film felt a little too strained and joyless.
