A Danish man has lost his faith. Previously religious, he has come to doubt and goes to Jerusalem to regain his confidence. In Jerusalem, he meets modern-day prophets of three religions: Islam, Judaism and Christianity.

Very up-close and personal pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
24 January 2005 | by madambaterflajSee all my reviews

Very up-close and personal pilgrimage to Jerusalem. The author's honesty is overwhelmingly moving. It makes your heart pound wildly, like you yourself are under some private confession or self-examination. The answer isn't in solving the problems. It's in asking the questions. God is our Father, no matter the religion. To our Father we go back. The film is about that journey, through several dimensions and levels. It's a therapeutic experience, a quest, a child's game with its identity, a constant search and scrutiny... The film is so tender and subtle that calling it a documentary is just a rough categorization, because it IS a true story after all, with no actors. It was made not to inform you, but to engage you. Jerusalem is what it should be. "The City of Messianic peace", as a character told. The peace that is never achieved, but always striven to. Just for a moment it's risen above wars, history, propaganda and global strategy, and yet, it's so aware and strong in the presence of all that. Jerusalem is chaos and crowd, heat and dust, drugs and violence, but it's also shadows of the desert and tight alleys, cold and pure water used in baptizing and ceremonial washing, it's milk and honey and the serenity of siestas. The film is basically so unpretentious and simple, but one can so truly feel the length and the intensity of the time spent in Israel, the depth of relationships with its citizens and the force of the will to excavate everything there is or could be within an apparently lost soul, or within the lost faith. Like a story writing itself. The biggest part of the author's achievement here is his heart. It's wide opened, like a radar pointed towards good voices, right questions and stories deserving to be heard. Thank you, Jeppe, for all that courage.
