Chasing the Star. Once again DJ Perry has shown his mastery in getting inside of the minds of his characters, producing dialogue with a focus on Historical Biblical facts, and making the viewer become the fly on the wall. Chasing the Star is a refreshing approach using all 4 Gospels to tell the old-old story as if seen thru a microscope with greater detail. By injecting youth where tradition leads us to believe there were three old men, the author gives the younger viewer a believable and good role model in the character Gasper played by Bello Pissimenti. You will step inside the minds of the characters, and experience a personal relationship with flash backs from their past. You will feel the love and passion in the wisdom of a mother's advice. You will witness the power of prayer as one pursues their life's calling.

Sin can be presented in a move without using nudity or extreme violence to tell a story. The full evil of King Herod is felt and alive in each scene. Without using any special effects, just great acting, Taymour Ghazi and Rance Howard make Satan one scary fellow. Night time and dark scene dominate and masterfully impress on the viewer of how dark these times really were. The heavy percussive sound track is very special, emotional effective, and complements very well. The music becomes one with the emotions of the story. You will have to watch this film more than once to pick up on all the symbolism presented using, 3 dimensional shots, clever camera angles, and great directing by Bret Miller.

Chasing the Star is a solid performance delivered by all with every expertly written line of the screenplay by DJ Perry. Using his personal knowledge of scripture, and great use of dialogue, makes the language of the time understandable for today. Attention Sunday school teachers, this film is class-room ready. Family viewing at its best. Biblical accurate and spiritually inspiring. A must see for all young Christians.
