Storyline

Tito Valerio Tauro viene inviato dall'imperatore Tiberio in Galilea per indagare sulla scomparsa del corpo di Gesù. Tito pensa di sbrigare in fretta il suo incarico e di far ritorno a Roma, ma incontra Claudia Procula, moglie di Pilato, affascinata dalla personalità di Gesù che gli rivela che Maria di Magdala è stata testimone della resurrezione di Gesù. Tito si convince che Gesù sia ancora vivo e che sia in atto una cospirazione per nasconderlo e, facendosi passare per cristiano, inizia a cercare Maria di Magdala anche lei scomparsa. La troverà, ma... Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Quite engaging and thought provoking.
18 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film about twelve years ago (the original Italian version, since I speak Italian)and I've been trying to acquire it ever since. I found the film's motif a timeless subject and handled very skillfully too. There are few film's I have been intrigued by but this I cannot recommend highly enough. I enjoyed the performances of Harvey Kietel and Keith Carradine; in fact I wasn't long into the film before I'd forgotten that both actors had an Italian voiceover. Harvey is a credible Pontius Pilate, who sends Carradine off on a dangerous mission. I'm amazed that the film's Director,Damiano Damiani hadn't come to a much wider international audience. If anyone knows where I might pick up a copy of the Italian version, I would sure appreciate their help. seoirle
