Canada/USA 1988, 164 min, Dir: Martin Scorsese
Jesus of Nazareth, who is tormented by the temptations of demons, pity for men and the world, and the constant call of God, sets out to find what God wills for him. But as his mission nears fulfillment, he must face the greatest temptation; the normal life of a good man. Based not on the Gospels, but on Nikos Kazantzakis’ novel of the same name.
