Beautiful account of a unique event, 27 April 2012
Author: richard-foxton from United Kingdom

A combination of documentary & additional footage woven into a personal take on the storyline of the Passion. Visually striking ,it harnesses the energy of a unique live performance layered with Dave McKean's illustrative stylisation. Great performances from Michael Sheen , Matthew Aubrey,John-Paul McLeod,David Rhys Talbot, & many more local actors , plus the visually arresting backdrop of Port Talbot itself. Cameo appearances by the Manic Street Preachers , Iwan Rhion & Paul Potts in the 'last supper' at the Social Club.The audience for the live performance ,ultimately numbering tens of thousands,make an extraordinary finale in the crucifixion scene . Dave McKean has made a beautiful film of a unique event.
