Gd_(0.67)Ca_(0.33)MnO_3(GCMO)thin films grown by laser ablation on SrTiO_3(100)(STO)substrates was studied. Films are highly crystallized, very well epitaxial and single-phased. The ordering magnetic temperature(T_c)of the films is much higher than the value of bulk samples of similar composition. It is found that the GCMO film exhibits a reversal of its magnetization at low temperature when cooled under a magnetic field. The negative magnetization is a consequence of the rapid increase(~1/T)with decreasing temperature of the magnetization of a sublattice aligned antiparallel to the local field, relative to the magnetic contribution of a second sublattice which is aligned parallel to the applied field.
