God Talks to Us through Cinema
8 September 2009 | by (Russian Federation, Ivanovo) – See all my reviews

There is a religious cult the New Jerusalem waiting for the imminent end of the world. A patriarch prophet Papá Basilio of the sect is watching an old black and white film Jesus of Nazareth and is sure that through this media God communicates with him and gives orders. A whore and a virgin arrive into this sect: the whore is declared being new Maria Magdalena and the young virgin – the future Mother of the New Messiah but fearing her divine role she proclaims herself to be the Whore of Babylon instead and starts sinning with all the male cultists. Gospel of Miracles (it's a correct English title) is like troubled water and at places it couldn't be seen through clearly so my gloss is just one variation of the many possible.
