Ok, but not mesmerizing...
18 October 2002 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 10/18/2002 - 5 out of 10(Dir-Jean Delannoy): Ok, but not mesmerizing depiction of the discipleship of Mary (the mother of Jesus) to Jesus, himself. This movie is one of the first attempts I've seen of depicting Mary's faithfulness to God from Jesus's conception to his ascension to heaven. This is a noble effort and Mary's portrayal is done well, but the rest of the movie doesn't seem to live up to what it could. Many parts of Jesus's life are cut out and some things are changed slightly to make them more bearable to the audience. The weird thing is that some scenes were almost word-for-word depiction's of the Bible and other's were twisted slightly. Besides this, the movie itself lacked emotion and heart about Jesus and the representation by the actor also lacked thereof. Again, a noble attempt to display Mary's point of view, but it was not executed very well, in my opinion.
