Storyline

It is the year 33 A.D. The Emperor Tiberius is troubled by strange phenomena, an earthquake and the sky turning black as an eclipse. His astrologers give him fair warning: their omens indicate that the world is in the throes of a great upheaval and that old gods have been annihilated. A new kingdom is about to rise in the East. The Emperor calls Tito Valerio Tauro, the most prominent investigator in Rome, back from his exile. He was ostracized years earlier because he had discovered too much regarding the death of the great Emperor Augustus, the predecessor of Tiberius. Tiberius entrusts Tauro with a mission that will require all his talent; should he conduct it successfully, his good name will be completely restored. He must discover the truth regarding the death sentence of a poor Judean rabbi. His name is Jesus of Nazareth and they say he has resurrected from the dead. Tiberius is convinced that it has something to do with the prophecies and the celestial omens that shook the world... Written by anonymous

Goofs

The Roman alphabet consists of capital letters only (no lower case). When Titus writes his letter to the emperor Tiberius he uses a lower case i (with a dot above it). Even the preceding Greek alphabet has the iota without a dot. See more »

Alternate Versions

There are two versions of the film, a theatrical one (112') and a TV one in two parts (190' - 95' each). The extended version premiered on Italian and is available on the Czech DVD edition. The TV version is highly recommended due to its complete script with a larger cast of relevant characters, which increases plot weight and eases the story understanding. Apart of some characters, a few secondary outlines appear despite of the cinema version. Sometimes, the short version seems to be cut off, but some viewer's questions may be shown are fully solved in the most amusing TV version. See more »

14 April 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

a Biblical film. not great ambitions, few nice fight scene, basic line, a cast with exercise in this type of drama ( Hristo Shopov - new / old Pontius Pilat, Hristo Jivkov - ex - John in Passion of Crist, now Stefan ), Dolph Lundgren in skin of different kind of role, Max van Sydow, Enrico Lo Verso , F. Murray Abraham as solid pillars , Ornela Mutti like drop of scent and beautiful Monica Cruz - alter -ego of her sister and basic attraction of a movie who is not Quo Vadis, not Jesus of Nazareth but little exercise to recreate atmosphere of Church beginnings. so, it is just an exercise. not spectacular, not interesting, almost boring and predictable but decent at first sigh. crumbs of history - legend about Tiberius death -, pieces of innovation - the decree about Chistianity freedom -, authentic miracle of come back to life of Tabitha and the end - mixture of dust and faith. a drawing like so many others.
