A pair of filmmakers explore the issues of faith in the 21st century during the shooting of a controversial retelling of the life of Jesus Christ in this documentary. Francesco Cabras and Alberto Molinari are documentarians who also work as actors, and the two men had small roles in Mel Gibson's film The Passion of the Christ. During the course of filming in Southern Italy, Cabras and Molinari brought a small camera crew to the set and conducted interviews with members of the cast and crew

It's a pity they didn't release this film paired with The Passion. It plays better than any 'Why I made this movie' documentary you've ever seen.
An annoying documentary by Francesco Cabras and Alberto Molinari.
What might have made for an interesting short film lacks the weight to sustain its feature (albeit, brief) length.
An exploration of personal religious belief in which members of the cast and crew of [The Passion of the Christ], as well as people from the southern Italian villages where it was made, are asked to ponder the question, 'What is God to you?'
Cabras and Molinari squander a golden opportunity to produce a spiritually oriented variation on the lightweight making-of genre.
While offering no tidy answers, The Big Question does illustrate the astounding variety of human experience and belief. Perhaps we can find some spiritual satisfaction in that.
A collage of highly personal reflections that range from the goofy to the surprisingly affecting.
