Where is it???
4 October 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This movie was shown on Canadian television several years ago and I saw most of it. Almost every movie about Jesus depicts him a stoic, serene, and God-like character with almost every line a quote from the Bible. There was much more to the human boy Jesus than any recorded history known. This movie shows what it would have been like to be Jesus, a human boy, in an accurately detailed setting. It is one of the most moving and spiritually uplifting religious movies I have ever seen. If you ever wondered what it may have been like for Jesus, in the undocumented years of His life, this film is a must see. Unfortunately, I have searched without success, for several years, to get, or even see, the English version of this masterpiece.
