Film on Fatima

I've just finished watching a most beautiful little film on the Apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, Portugal in 1917. The film has the title: "The 13th Day" and its website can be found HERE.
I must say that the film is visually very beautiful and appealing. It is shot in black and white format, but colour is used whenever heaven breaks into this grey world during each of the apparitions. Also the musical score for the film is hauntingly beautiful. I would highly recommend this film at so many levels. Though it is not an exhaustive treatment of what happened back in 1917 at Fatima, it certainly would be a wonderful introduction for people to the Message of Fatima; a message as relevant today as when it first issued from the Immaculate Heart of Mary at the Cova d'Ira.
