CFDb Review:

Some great cinematography in this one.  Check out the CFDb Movie Review.

Film Synopsis:

Marcelino is a heart-warming tale of an orphan boy caught in the midst Mexico’s revolution. The story begins as the monks of a poor war ravaged monastery find an infant abandoned on their doorstep. Having nowhere to turn in the wake of the war, they decide to raise him in the monastery. The child grows into a rambunctious boy fond of playing jokes on the friars with his best friend Enrique. Marcelino finds himself yearning for a mother as he observes the deep bond Enrique shares with his mother.

An attack by revolutionaries leaves the tiny village in chaos and Enrique dying in the arms of his grieving mother, as Marcelino looks on. Overcome with fear he hides in the one place he was warned to never go – the attic of the monastery. While hiding there he is drawn to a statue with a face so full of love that he is compelled to visit it often. Marcelino is too young to realize that it is a statue of Jesus.

Thinking the statue looks hungry, he sneaks bread and wine into the attic and offers it to the statue. As he gives his offering, the statue miraculously comes to life and accepts the gift. Moved by the boy’s gift of faith, Jesus grants Marcelino’s deepest wish, to be reunited with his mother.

“Basada en el clásico de la literatura infantil, escrito por José María Sánchez-Silva, esta la historia de Marcelino (Mark Hernández), quien es abandonado desde muy pequeño en un monasterio de frailes franciscanos, quienes, al ver la imposibilidad de entregarlo a alguna familia, deciden criarlo en el monasterio durante el México revolucionario.”
