Jesus of Nazareth (1977)

Rated NR

A look at Jesus’ life from birth to death using the Gospel accounts. Starring Robert Powell, Anne Bancroft, Ernest Borgnine, Christopher Plummer, Laurence Olivier, Anthony Quinn

If you can look pass the actor playing Christ as a European man than this was a pretty spot on film. I think I understood the blue eye actor playing Christ. The filmmakers I think were trying to point out that Jesus was different from those around him but what I think they missed was that Christ came to show he was one of us. He’s part of the crowd not singled out. Although, I loved Robert Powell’s portrayal of Christ. I think he did  a wonderful job. He capture the spirit of Jesus even if he doesn’t look like Jesus. Not only does Powell do a marvelous job but the story covered practically everything in the gospels. And what was uncertain they did a great job in filling the blanks. It’s a film to see.
