JESUS CRIES is a modern adaptation of the New Testament. The story is set in a fictitious metropolis in the near future. The First and Third Worlds are reflected in one city. The divide between poor and wealthy continually grows. As insurrection begins, Jesus of Nazareth becomes the political and spiritual force behind change. He is arrested, tortured, and executed. After his death, his disciples are thrown into confusion with feelings of doubt and guilt. They fight over the interpretation of his teachings and their responsibility to his vision. Will they themselves move to action?
The passion narrative ... completely recreated ... concussive ... touching ... great art
JESUS CRIES" is a very profound touching and concussive film with after-effect. For me, the passion narrative was an abstract story from the Bible, which one has no real meaning in my life ... because there was no point of contact to me. Transported in the presence with all these pictures of our today", the film become disturbingly tangible, close and real. At times, however, it is almost too much to bear, because Jesus performer Sabin Tambrea suffers very realistic.
I think the time has come for a special kind of hope. And I admire Brigitte Maria Mayer that she has found a way to express also hope and kindly love in a film with a lot of violence and disturbing callousness.
It is certainly not a film that is just consumed and forgotten. Because of this JESUS CRIES" is a very invaluable project. In my opinion, all the artists have created a work of art, which is touching very deep and reverberated. --- I'm sorry ... it would be much more easier for me, to write all these emotional words in German ... but it is an international database, and so I gave my best and hopefully you understand what I mean.
