A wonderful telling of one of the most famous stories in history, the life of Christ, even though interestingly, there is a twist - the story is portrayed from the perspective of Mary, Christ's mother even to the point where a fragment of Mary's childhood is shown; the fact were she narrowly escapes danger sort of tells that the battle of Christ's work on Earth was fought from even when Mary was a little girl. All in all despite the suggestive scenes most of which indicate the element of truth in the story, this story delivers a message, and many of these suggestive scenes are dwarfed by the numerous touching scenes that deliver the message in this film. It's one of those movie where parental guidance is advised for younger viewers, but it is a MUST WATCH.
