Spike Lee has done a fantastic job in re'creating what is still called in Italy 'The Massacre at Stazzema'. I know the real story as I am from the area ans was pleasantly suprised that Spike Lee showed both the human and evil aspects of what happened at St Anna's. This is a very important story for many in Tuscany and I am grateful to Spike Lee for allowing others to know about it. Yet another masterpiece on his part. If you arte interested in knowwing the 'truths' of WW2, the humanity, bravery and sacrifice of those involved you will be encaptured by this film. The Buffalo soldiers involved were heroes in this part of Tuscany.

I watched this film because I have an interest in the region that it was set and some of the wartime stories are intruging and unbelievable. I also thought that the premise of following a Buffalo platoon was original and interesting. However, the film itself was a mess, with just random stories linked together by a rather dull, overlong journey that the soldiers take (the film is needlessly over 2 hours). The characters were cliched and boring and Spikes Lee's usual message about racism was too preachy and overtly obvious. However, what I disliked most about the film was although he is trying to beat racism, he then shoots himself in the foot by being sterotypical against the Italians and sexist - the lead Italian woman is gorgous and takes her top off in every scene for no particular reason - give me a break!!!

There is very little that is good about this film and I would advise everyone to avoid it. Maybe the end is excellent, but I wouldn't know because I didn't get that far.

1984----A post office clerk shoots a customer using a 'German' pistol.
'Hector Negron' winner of a 'Purple Heart' from the 'Italian' Campaign in 1944 now faces a life sentence.
Whilst in custody,when interviewed by a newspaper reporter 'Hector' tells his story of his time in a tuscan villiage behind enemy lines with three comrades......'Aubrey Stamps' 'Bishop Cummings' and gentle giant 'Sam Train' ( who has taken a frightened orphan into his care )
And how he becomes the guardian of an ancient artifact.
With some superb battle and fire-fight sequences.
A genuine heart wrenching and often touching story-line.
This is 'Hector's' journey .
The film will not dissapoint.

First of all, in reply to other reviewers, if you buy a Spike Lee film you know what you are going to get - some preaching, some history and some hard hitting scenes. The Miracle certainly manages all three of these, with the addition of a good plot and spectacular action scenes. Personally I thought the way he linked the central story from the start to the end of the film was ingenious, without wishing to give anything away.
The Italian partisan scenes were especially believable in this film and the central message - that all humans are capable of inflicting misery onto others and that, conversely, each are also capable of compassion - is rammed home with a vengeance; in this film, you have good Germans, bad Germans and downright Nazi Germans. If you like WW2 films with a touch of class then this is for you.

I was intrigued by this film after seeing the trailer online - it was an interesting premise and I like Spike Lee as a director - he always has something to say beyond just entertaining you. The film kicks off in recent times with a very dramatic opening before moving to flashback where we join the infamously segregated Buffalo Soldiers division in Tuscany as they are being pummelled by Nazi infantry fire - in what can only be described as an epic battle scene to rival any you may have seen in any war film ever made. Some of the men are cut off from their division and end up in a mountain village where they befriend the initially wary villagers and rescue a traumatised young boy who has witnessed a massacre by the Nazi's - as a punishment for recent resistance activity. One of the men carries around with him a dismembered stone head that he rescued from a blitzed bridge - which he believes gives him special protective powers - which he uses to protect the boy....no ordinary war movie for sure - but a totally fresh perspective on a little told aspect of WWII.

During Christmas 1983, dedicated New York post clerk Hector Negron (LAZ ALONSO) suddenly shoots a stranger wanting to buy a stamp. After his arrest the police search his small apartment and discover that not only was Negron a soldier in WWII, but won the Purple Heart and more astonishingly owns a valuable Italian marble head which has been missing since the war.

Facing the death penalty for the fatal shooting, Negron is visited by young reporter Tim Boyle (JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT) who wishes to know his story.

Back in 1944, Negron was a member of the 92nd Buffalo soldier infantry regiment fighting the Germans in Italy. After an ambush while crossing the Serchio river, he suddenly finds himself on the enemy held side and cut off from his comrades. A trio of other soldiers have made it across too, Sergeants Stamps and Cummings (DEREK LUKE and MICHAEL EALY) and the towering Private Train (OMAR BENSON MILLAR). Train is carrying the Italian marble head, which he believes is a good luck charm that makes him invisible to the eyes of the enemy.

Establishing radio contact with Headquarters, the four soldiers are ordered to exploit their opportunity and capture a German prisoner. Disheartened by this news, the quartet stumble upon a deserted barn where they find a young boy, Angelo Torancelli (newcomer MATTEO SCIABORDI), who is feverish and shell shocked. Angelo babbles of visions and the deeply religious Train comes to believe the child is in direct contact with God. The soldier nurses the boy until he is fit to walk and lead them to the small village of Colognord. Here they find some of the Italians wishing to help, such as the young woman Renata (the lovely VALENTINA CERVI), who is secretly assisting the local Partisan leader, Peppi Grotta (PIERFRANCESCO FARINO).
