The best film of a Bible story I have ever seen
3 October 1999 | by (Reading,England) – See all my reviews

The film was the most faithful Bible adaptation I have seen. It kept faithful to the Bible with intelligent in-filling of Biblical gaps of plot and character. The drama was maintained with real depth and passion to the characters
