From the man who brought biopic film "Malcolm X" and crime-drama movie "Inside Man", Spike Lee, comes a new feature film dealing with the Sant'Anna di Stazzema massacre, "Miracle at St. Anna" and Touchstone Pictures have released its first trailer. The dramatic video footage takes more than two and a half minutes to be seen, but it displays epic and emotional footages from the movie.

Giving out the first in depth look into the drama tidbit, the trailer pretty much gives out the background idea on what the movie is all about. From the look of the compilation of clips, the movie seems to be told from the interview with the main character, Hector Negron. The first part of the trailer explained that Hector, a former African-American Buffalo soldier, killed a man and after the incident, police find a priceless Italian artifact that may unlock the 39-year-old mystery in his New York home. The second part goes back to the time of the World War II and focuses on the struggle of the American soldiers to save an Italian boy.

Chronicling the story about the four African-American soldiers of the 92nd "Buffalo Soldier" Division who are stationed in Tuscany, Italy during World War II, "Miracle" is a drama movie based on an acclaimed novel by James McBride. The movie set for September 26 release focuses on the band of U.S. Army as they risk their life to save the boy. It features the likes of Laz Alonso, Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Omar Benson Miller, John Turturro, D.B. Sweeney and many others.

I read the book, which is poorly written and full of ridiculous historical errors. The event depicted took place on August 12, 1944, when elements of the 16th SS Panzer Grenadier Division killed 560 people, including 116 children. No US soldiers were involved, let alone African-Americans from the 92nd Division. One villager commented "It's a false reconstruction that does not take account of the historical reality," adding "This sort of fiction should be banned, otherwise the damage to the memory and historical truth will be very serious." I do not advocate banning movies, and plan on seeing this one. That said, I think Spike Lee needs to get his own act together instead of hurling stones at Clint Eastwood.
