| The messenger must be silenced.
Let me start off by saying that I love the beginning of this movie. I love the opening scene to the cruci-fixion scenes. Patricia Arquette and Gabriel Byrne both do good acting jobs. The film is about a young girl with no faith in god who begins to recieve the wounds of the crucified Christ, the Stigmata.

I must say that I was very disappointed in the ending. It was not the climax that I was hoping for. But I was still enthralled enough to keep watching until the film ended. If you are totally into the religious horror movies, like me, I suggest that you also see END OF DAYS, LOST SOULS, BLESS THE CHILD, and I'm sure there's some other movie like those out there. STIGMATA gets 4/5.

Trivia

To anyone who's ever trained (or even fed) birds, it's obvious the doves flying into Frankie Paige's hands are eating from her palms.


Quotes

Donna Chadway: So Jen, tell us about your date.
Jennifer Kelliho: It was with a tax lawyer.


Goofs

In the bathtub scene, we see numerous shots of Frankie suggesting she is completely naked in the tub (without seeing actual nudity). Right after she places the fallen feather on the side of the tub, the unseen "force" pulls her backwards into the water. As she is falling back, we can clearly see she is wearing a flesh colored bra or bikini top.


Alternate Versions

The DVD features an optional director's alternate ending from the theatrical version. In the scene near the end after Frankie (Patricia Arquette) is freed from her affliction, Father Kiernan (Gabriel Byrne) carries her outside in his arms and sits at a bench, and we see her collapse in his arms. He looks up to see her holding a bird in her hand, then she walks away. After she apparently walks away, he looks back down to see her lifeless body still in his arms -- she actually died from the fifth stigmata and he watched her soul depart. In the theatrical version, after she walks away with the bird, Father Kiernan is left alone on the bench, and the impression is that she's "cured" and lives the rest of her life naturally.
