The film was a great true-to-life glimpse of Mary's life., 7 August 2002
Author: bill7 ( from USA

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.
