O ateu Pasolini foi capaz de compreender algo que o devoto Mel Gibson falhou em perceber: a morte de Cristo é apenas um pequeno ato de uma história repleta de belas mensagens.
| Original Score: 5/5

seen with 2003 eyes, Pasolini's work presents only the letter of the gospel and leaves out its spiritual essence

Pasolini's arresting, profoundly reverential piece tells the story of the life of Jesus in a neo-realist style, employing stark, sometimes beautiful black-and-white photography, and a cast of non-professional actors who are on the whole admirable.

The slightly uncomfortable close-ups that dominate [it] place the audience in a position where they're closer than they might have ever expected to be to the towering Biblical figures that dominate the Passion play.
