Storyline

Caleb vive in Galilea ai tempi di Gesù e si arrabatta con qualche furtarello e facendosi passare per mago. Per caso si trova a un banchetto di nozze e vede Gesù trasformare l'acqua in vino e pensa subito di aver trovato un concorrente più abile di lui. Riesce a rubare una collana per poi perderla e trova Deborah con cui dividerà la vita. Sempre affascinato dalla figura del Cristo, che continuerà a credere un mago più abile di lui, finirà in croce con lui accusato di un vecchio furto. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

a thief adventure
18 December 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is, in same time, a nice Italian comedy and a religious film. a joke and map of a fundamental discover. a portrait of actual world. and a seductive labyrinth. a touching film, too long, maybe, but interesting, fresh and full of smart manner to build a different work about sacrifice of Christ. so, it is perfect movie for entire family because, in fact, it is only a beautiful story about a man and his image about life. essence - the right performance and slices of commedia dell arte, the meridional spirit as perfect spice and courage to realize a small revolution of good thief image. nothing else. with flavor of childhood games , with precise view about metamorphose of an existence, it is source of special joy.
