Trivia

The film was released thirty-five years after its source novel of the same name by Nikos Kazantzakis was published. Also known as "The Last Temptation", the novel was published in English in 1960, Martin Scorsese first optioned the film rights to the book during the late 1970s.


Quotes

Jesus: Why has it changed so much?
Girl Angel/Satan: It hasn't changed. You have. Now you can see its real beauty.


Goofs

The film opens with a printed text, translated from the writings of Nikos Kazantzakis. It contains the line "My principle anguish and source of all my joys and sorrows from my youth onward has been the incessant, merciless battle between the spirit and the flesh." The word "principle" is used incorrectly, the correct context is "principal." This mistake has not been corrected in any home video release despite being widely noted ever since the movie first came out.


Crazy Credits

During the end credits, Peter Gabriel, composer for the film, credits all the people that used instruments for the music.
