Priest Pettifer is trying to convince the Vatican to canonize Edith Semple, a woman who died in 1917 with not quite enough miracles attributed to her to qualify for sainthood. Back in Glasgow, at the school for slow students named for Semple, one teacher (Conti) has some strong

disagreements about what actually constitutes a miracle. Conti believes that the day-to-day victories of his struggling students are wonderful miracles in themselves. Then Conti enters the hospital after a fainting spell, and tests show he has an incurable brain tumor. After he falls from a ladder

while rescuing a student from the school's roof, his tumor mysteriously vanishes. This is just the first of many strange happenings in this film. Conti is perfectly cast to type in his nonconformist role. The story is unassuming, concentrating on the small moments of life that Conti considers to

be the true miracles of the world. A door is left open to the possibilities of things beyond understanding, however, conveyed without compromising the film's central theme. Overall, although hardly memorable, THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO VIC is a quaint and enjoyable little comedy.
