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

Great premise, flawed execution
2 June 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

L'Inchiesta/The Inquiry is such a great idea that I'd love to cut it more slack, but sadly it's ultimately rather flat and dull. Keith Carradine stars as an overconfident Roman official sent to a remote part of the empire to on a bizarre investigation, only to attract the suspicion of the local governor: after all, reasons Pontius Pilate (Harvey Keitel, warming up for his turn as Judas in Scorsese's Last Temptation the following year), would the Emperor really send someone all the way to Judea to find the stolen body of a crucified Jew? Unfortunately having established the premise, director Damiano Damioni's left with a script by Vittorio Bonicelli that doesn't really have anywhere interesting to go and lacks, of all things, passion.

A few promising ideas get thrown up here and there, but this inquiry never really gets to the heart of the matter. One of the few films that really does cry out for a decent remake.
