The film opens with what seems like the murder of an innocent man at the post office. The rest of the story helps explain why it happens, who the players are and what event— which turns out to be a true atrocity in Italian history—leads to this present-day murder at a New York City post office.

Alonso Duralde MSNBC(consensus voice)"Spike Lee’s latest not quite a ‘Miracle’ -WWII drama boasts strong performances but an overlong screenplay"

slide15
Writer James McBride: “You could say it’s a war movie. You could say it’s a movie about a boy and a man. You could say it’s a movie about Americans and Italians. You could say it’s a movie about a German who does the right thing. But the film is ultimately about the miracle of love between human beings and the choices they make in the face of enormous adversity.”

slide16
Writer McBride tells us that the WW2 Buffalo Soldier weren’t the first African Americans to fight for the U.S., in fact, the term Buffalo Soldier dates back to the Mexican War. It was a nickname that the Native Americans gave to them.

All but forgotten to history, suddenly the Buffalo Soldier emerge into our awareness. Good things and service do not get the press. Bad things do. This movie reminds us that ultimately, despite the headlines, it’s good that has real eternal value. Thanks Spike Lee for this epic reminder!

slide17
Plagued by the boy’s traumatic past and language barriers, the characters must find a way to communicate. The soldiers speak English, the kid speaks Italian. Sam Train, a gentle giant comes up with this system of tapping. They connect!

LOVE KNOWS NO LANGUAGE BARRIER.

LOVE IS DETERMINED.

LOVE WILL MAKE A WAY.

slide18
Producer Luigi Musini: “It’s about friendship and about getting to know each other behind fears and prejudices. It’s about helping each other. It’s about the extraordinary encounter of different people, blacks and whites, old people and children, Italians and Americans and Germans, all in the midst of a war.” --Now, if we could do this without the glue of war and desperation!
