Why have the Maria statues in the living room of a couple in Limburg been weeping for years? This question is asked by Kees-Jan Mulder and Jaap van Heusden, in this documentary variation on Van Heusden’s fiction film De man uit Rome.
Filmmaker Jaap van Heusden previously made the fiction film De man uit Rome, about weeping Maria statues. The same subject formed the base for this short documentary he co-directed with Kees-Jan Mulder. The living room of a couple in Limburg is full of statues of saints, crying over all the bad news filing past on their television screens. But while nobody believes them, the two self-proclaimed 'little prophets’ are preparing for the imminent time when their rented house will become an international place of pilgrimage, including a healing spring.
