Storyline

When the marriage between AMOS and MARY MAGDALENE turns out to be childless, he casts her out and gets a divorce. Mary has to leave Magdala. She befriends SILVANO, a Roman prefect, who promises her a new life at his side. A few days after her departure Mary meets the prophet JOHN THE BAPTIST, whom Silvano suspects of being a revolutionary. The prefect tells her to cultivate John more intensively. In this way Mary becomes acquainted with the teaching of the coming Messiah, and it begins to interest her. To protect John from the Romans she pretends to Silvano that he is harmless # but when the prefect finds out that how dangerous John is in the eyes of the tetrarch HEROD ANTIPAS, he feels he was wronged and purposely tricked by Mary. He casts her out as well. After a suicide attempt, Mary lowers herself to prostitution. HEROIDAS, the wife of Herod Antipas, invites Mary to come to her because of her knowledge of the healing arts. In this way she gets to know SALOME, who later asks for ... Written by Anonymous

beautiful
4 April 2015 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is not only a religious movie but, in same measure, a beautiful film. for acting, for the new image of Mary - not close by Bible testimony but interesting for a credible story -, for music and landscapes. and, sure, for Maria Grazia Cucinotta who has the admirable science to use her beauty for give nuances and force and light to the lead character in wise manner. a character who becomes alive for her purpose, her expectations, her faith. in same measure, Benjamin Sadler gives a new John the Baptist , different by other versions of Jesus story. and without be better or an error, that fact is real useful. a beautiful film about the roots of an important member of Christ's circle. far by Dan Brown's universe but , for this fact, interesting.
