An international film
30 April 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

As has been pointed out, Messiah has an English libretto, but there are a number of different language versions.

Perhaps Klein wanted to make more of an international film. After all, the film depicts scenes from around the world. I know our Francophone friends would be distressed to learn that English is now the international language.
