Trivia

The crucifixion scene shows the nails driven, as tradition would have it, through the palms of Jesus' hands. It takes two taps of the hammer to drive the nail through his right palm and three taps to drive it through his left. Many now believe that in Roman crucifixions, nails were driven through the wrists. See more »

Exceptionally well-done
18 November 1999 | by shorsiesSee all my reviews

This movie was brilliantly made and delivered a profound message. I thought Pernilla August did a wonderful job of displaying emotions and being able to get an audience to empathize with her. Christian Bale's representation of Jesus was passionate and compelling. He did an excellent job of portraying Jesus in His later years and helping give viewers insight on what He went through. I enjoyed the idea of this movie putting emphasis on the relationship of Mary and Jesus, showing that even the most powerful person of all time remembers His mother and to love and care for her the way she did from the moment He was born. This movie was definitely unique and I hope to see more that are as great as this.
