Movie Info

The story of the life and death of Jesus Christ gets a new (and strongly politicized) retelling in a powerful drama from Africa. Mary (Pauline Malefane) is seeking shelter in a schoolhouse during a skirmish in the midst of a bloody civil war when she is visited by an angel of the Lord, who tells her that she will give birth to the son of God. Mary raises Jesus (Andile Kosi) until he grows to adulthood; he then sets out on his own, preaching a new faith which embraces compassion and non-violence

Well-acted, beautifully photographed and edited, it's a brisk story told with African music and universal pathos.

Son of Man boils down the life of Jesus Christ to 86 concise minutes, restoring layers of political motivation largely absent from The Passion of the Christ and adding stirring original vocal music.

The film is worth watching just to see how the story is adapted, and for the elements that give it a National Geographic flair.

The religious set will certainly enjoy this vividly colorful new take on Jesus but the film sort of limits itself from the rest of us.
