I want the DVD!
3 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

I saw this mini series about the young Christianity in Rome, when I was a girl and never quite forgot about it. It reminded me in some ways of "The Robe" which is in that case a very high compliment. I also was madly in love with both Caleb and Julius Valerius Licinius, and so was my sister, btw. See? I even remember the names. I was looking up and down the net and didn't find any trace of it on DVD. I would so like to rewatch it again and see, if it still has the same magic and exceptional storytelling I remember it had. Whoever is in possession of the rights for this: If it was out on DVD I'd buy it instantly. *hint, hint*
