19 April 2014 | Vincentiu
its virtues, its sins
an interesting film. for the desire to give a nuanced portrait of Crist. for exploration of His humanity with a splendid courage. for Jeremy Sisto performance, who could not be a real surprise. a honest movie about the most delicate subject. but... its virtues are, in same measure, its sins. because the image of Savior is precise and the Gospels are not ordinary script. because few connections between characters seems be forced. because, in many moments it is too... American.sure, it is an exercise to present a complete image of Jesus. and it is difficult to say than it is a not inspired work. but the reserves - nothing new about the theme remains after its end. because, after all, Jesus is the Son of God for many viewers. and despite than it is only an artistic creation, the clash with faith is expected event.
