Trivia

Yorgo Voyagis, who plays Joseph (Mary's husband), can be seen speaking in English, but his voice is dubbed by an uncredited actor. Voyagis' real voice can be heard in the Diane Keaton film The Little Drummer Girl (1984). Franco Zeffirelli also used this technique with a few of the actors in his film version of Romeo and Juliet (1968). See more »

Pilate asks Jesus if he is a king. Jesus responds, "I am," but his lips say something else. See more »

Quotes

Simon Peter: [Peter is drunk] Andrew. Andrew, I'm not like you. I'm not a follower of priests and prophets; I'm a fisherman. I've got my family to think of. You followed the Baptist, now follow this one...
Philip: [grabbing Peter's Arm] Peter!
Simon Peter: [wresting free] Just leave me alone! Why did you bring Him here to me?
[grabbing his net]
Simon Peter: *This* is my life! My nets... my boat.
[shouting]
Simon Peter: Go on! Follow Him! But leave me!
Andrew: Come on, you can't talk to him when he's like this.
[motioning the others to leave]
Andrew: Come on, Philip.

Great for Families
13 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched this film for many years with my family. Each year we follow the life of Jesus through Holy Week and Easter Sunday. The director has made this a film that is understandable for all ages and makes the realism unique. I would highly recommend this film for families. Even though I loved "The Passion of the Christ," I found this film easier to view for the family. Maybe we'll watch in earnest when the kids are a little older, teens perhaps. All in all this film takes you through an understanding of life as it would have been seen through the eyes of the common person. Perhaps it is this reality that allows people to gravitate toward a love for the film and a commitment to making the viewing of it each year and family tradition. Looking for a great family movie to help teach the faith, this is it.
