Critic Reviews for The Third Miracle
Well-acted but unsatisfying drama about researching a potential saint
...a thinking person's version of the millennial spiritual angst movie
An odd bit of spiritual dithering, not really bad but not really good.
The Third Miracle is a film rife with religious ideology but also steeped in the atmosphere of a classic detective novel.
Audience Reviews for The Third Miracle
Ed Harris, Anne Heche; directed by polish director Agnieszka Holland. In this drama, the Vatican sends a cynical priest to verify miracles performed by a woman who has been nominated for sainthood. During this investigation, the priest rediscovers his lost faith & passion. Anne Heche can ACT; Ed Harris is wonderful as the priest.
My very favorite Ed Harris movie! He plays a priest who is conflicted in his vocation due to his lingering worldly qualities of intellect, intimacy and guilt. The plot revolves around his role in presenting a case for the sainthood of a Chicago housewife - a task that forces him to confront his relationship with God. Armin Mueller-Stahl also delivers a great performance as the Devil's Advocate. Anne Heche was a bit thin (no pun intended)in her role as the priest's would-be lover - a role that called out for someone more vulnerable and luscious. And then there's the compelling soundtrack, but I gush... By all means, rent this movie. And watch for the the exquisite expression on Ed Harris' face when Heche leaves him sitting at the bar. I've never seen so many feelings revealed in one face as those he manages to put forth in that brief instant of film. Harris needs more roles like this that allow us to experience his tenderness and depth.
Excellent movie about a priest who questions his Faith and a woman who finds hers through him....I enjoyed this one very much!
