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

The film was a great true-to-life glimpse of Mary's life.
7 August 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I found that the Mary Magdalene film was quite inspiring. It was probably one of the best portrayals of Mary Magdalene and John the Baptist I have ever seen. The characters were so down to earth and real. People that you could relate to. The artistic license was great in the movie also. Even though we don't know much about her, the movie wasn't made to be far fetched. It was awesome.
