I have just bought this on DVD from Amazon after years of failing to find it on Netflix, Prime or youtube. In my opinion it's a really wonderful dramatisation of the Easter story - and Joseph Mawle is the best Jesus I've ever seen. He looks very similar to the image on the Turin Shroud, and I wonder if this was deliberate? That face . . . those eyes. But he also manages to portray a man who is also a son of God, which is no mean feat. All in all, a fantastic production that seems to have not got as many plaudits as it deserves - for anyone wanting to watch something at Easter to remind them of what it is really all about, you can't go wrong with this :)
