I Also Recommend:
This year while looking for an inspirational movie pre-Easter, I saw this & thought, why not? The plot creatively commemorates the Passion from the distance of a few years as Roman Tribune Titus Valerious Tauro, sent on a secret mission from Caesar Tiberius to Judea, seeks to discern the truth of the Resurrection of Jesus. In Judea Tauro finds Mary, Peter & pre-conversion Paul (in persecution mode) while also developing a major case of 'the likes' for Tabitha, a young Jewish woman in Jerusalem. The sweeping story also includes battle scenes in Germania where Tauro takes captive Brixos, a barbarian warrior who becomes his loyal servant and protector. (Yes, Dolph Lundgren in true form gets to bash a few heads throughout the movie!!) Really enjoyed this movie - the creative inquiry approach (that also includes a Roman 'C.S.I' segment of an exhumed body!), intrigue (Pontius Pilate's political machinations), the love story between Tauro & Tabitha, the flash-backs to the crucifixion from the perspective of the Roman Centurion, the humor woven throughout, the portrayal of Mary & especially Peter...great casting all around! Daniele Liotti does a great job with Dolph Lundgren, Monica Cruz et all. Faith-filled, inspirational movie that will stay with you for awhile -- the scene where Tauro asks Mary to help is especially beautiful. Highly recommend, not just at Easter for for the whole year!
