I like the film Lady of Guadalupe, because it is very mysterious and suspenseful with lots of curious and never-ending wonders. It held my attention throughout the whole film. I love how they used flashbacks to earlier years to help move the story along.
The storyline follows a young reporter, John Martinez (Guillermo Ivan) and the love of his life, Mary (Kimberley Aria Peterson). Mary is pregnant and their life is going along smoothly until she is in an accident and is help to get her and the baby. John has received an assignment about the legend of Our Lady of Guadalupe which he has trouble writing, until he finds a little faith.
The film has lots of flashbacks, which help put things into perspective and help the audience understand the history of the Lady of Guadalupe as well as the present situation of John and Mary. The flashbacks show many scenes and different people with different problems. I like how we see the actors in both the past and modern day. This film is very unique. Guillermo Ivan plays both Juan Diego and John Martinez. The historical scenes of Juan Diego that show the past contrast greatly with those of John Martinez shot in the current day in the USA. We get glimpses of Latin culture in the way they live in the past and present.
The message is that you got to have a little faith or you won't get that happy ending in life. Faith is important when you're in a difficult situation, because it has so many benefits and helps you throughout your entire life. Have Faith!
I give Lady of Guadalupe 4 out 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Makena P., KIDS FIRST!
Lady of Guadalupe
Lady of Guadalupe
Based on true events, "Lady of Guadalupe" is a moving religious discovery juxtaposing folklore and the present day. Historically significant recreations are used to illustrate the origin of her prevalent and powerful symbolism of Mexican identity and faith. When a young and ambitious reporter (Guillermo Iván) is assigned an article on faith, he finds himself enmeshed in the legend of Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe. Skeptical of miracles and the importance of modern-day Christianity, the reporter's investigation takes him from cynic to true believer as his personal limits are tested.
