A nice eye-friendly story about happenings
25 December 2006 | by ptinitsSee all my reviews

A quite enjoyable story about virgin Mary's take on the evangelists, it does not really concentrate on the emotional development of Mary or on how she really reacted and lived through all of the events, but rather understands the limits of time for any movie, and gives a visually compelling story about what else was going on around Jesus - all the rest of the story has been reduced to a few semiotic remarks and dialogues, while the mother is made to have opinions of her own, and somewhat even conflicting with that of the newborn god-son. It is still a movie about Jesus & co, but as the rest of the acting is based on the bible and is for most part known to viewers, the eventful parts of the movie will become visuals and reactions and actions of the mother who is present. It kind-of shows the mothers being in the world while at the same time the rest becomes just scenery. That's what can be done with a story that is constantly retold. Enjoyable, do watch this.

Referto: Rozencrantz and Guildenstern are dead. (just for the hell of it) maybe for similar kicks.
