A heartfelt and powerful examination of faith that no serious student or enthusiast of theology or philosophy should miss

June 10, 2004
New Times

All we've got for most of the picture is philosophy, something which doesn't work very well on the silver screen.

November 7, 2003
Greenwich Village Gazette

"The Body" posits a truly fascinating and thought-provoking idea and then wraps it in absurdity.

Vividly conveys the explosive mix of faith, passion, and politics in Jerusalem.

Audience Reviews for The Body

Antonio Banderas is a priest sent by the Vatican to verify the remains of a body thought to be that of Christ. Cue half-arsed discussions on theology, much hand wringing and some cobblers about arab terrorists who want to kidnap the bag of bones for reasons not explained. In turns dull and absurd, it's nothing but a dreary workmanlike thriller that's poorly directed and cheap looking. A waste of time.

Has a twist ending! Good movie to start a Christianity vs Atheism debate.
