Trivia

In the crucifixion scene, it takes 10 blows of the hammer to nail Jesus' left hand and 14 blows to nail his right. It takes 6 blows of the hammer to nail his left foot and 7 blows to nail his right. 37 blows in all. Jesus remains silent during this ordeal and does not even flinch. Meanwhile the two thieves are shown tied to their crosses rather than nailed. This follows a tradition that Jesus' crucifixion had to be unique. Thus the thieves must be crucified in an alternate manner. See more »

This is one of the largest and better versions done already about the Life, the Passion, the Death, Resurrection and the Ascension of Ours Mr. Jesus Christ!!!
19 July 2003 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I live here in Brazil, I am now 32 years of age old and I remember that I attended this version that was exhibited in extinct TV Tupi in the Week Saint 1980, when I was with about 8 for 9 years of age. And from, then this version never again of my head, and I only attended her again when 17 years later in 1997. This film follows the Gospel faithfully, everything this perfect one in him!!! The actors' characterizations and of the figurants, the sceneries that you/they reproduce the houses, the streets, the palaces are excellent. A true super-production. A grandiose one epic biblical. All the actors' speeches, the scenes, follow the text of the four Gospel faithfully.

Jesus Christ (that is interpreted by Luis Álvarez), unlike the other versions ("King of Kings" with Jeffrey Hunter, "Jesus of Nazareth" of Franco Zeffirelli, with Robert Powell, for instance) he never has his face shown in scene. He is just shown of backs, giving prominence to the long brown hair. But nor for this detail this film loses his beauty. Luis Álvarez is great in Jesus' paper, and also all the rest of the cast. The fact of Jesus' face not to be shown in any scene it is so that the person to who is attending east films, imagine inside of itself which would be the true of the Master!!! This film is beautiful, wonderful!!!! It is worthwhile to attend!!! This is without a doubt, in my opinion, one of the largest and better versions already done on the birth, the passion, crucifixion, death, resurrection and ascension of Ours Mr. Jesus Christ, except the largest and the best of all!!!
