When Daniel coaches the players at the first rehearsal, he tells them " Beget a temperance". Rene continues "..in the whirlwind of passion". They are quoting from Hamlet Act 2 Sc 2, when Hamlet instructs the players on how to perform the upcoming play-within-a-play. Earlier, Rene had asked Daniel if he could deliver Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliloquy in the production. (He did). See more »

A robust, inventive parallel to the life of Christ. This film seems to display utter commitment and genuine integrity. It is moving without being sentimental, and tells its tale with rigour and without too many contrived plot developments. The performances are splendid. You don't have to be religious to appreciate this one, since it stands up in its own right, even if the parallels are ignored. Deserves to be better known.
