Movie Reviews

The question we all ask at least Once in our lives
Subayaitori | Kumamoto, Japan | 10/20/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very thoughtful and charming documentary directed by Francesco Cabras and Alberto Molinari. Of the cast and crew from the motion picture "The Passion of Christ" get asked about their own personal beliefs and faith when it comes to God. Over 200 people were interviewed. Everyone from Jews, to Christians, to Muslims, to Atheists, to people who are still looking for the answers give a very open and honest take on the big theological questions we all ask at least once in our lifetime. Yet, the best part about this documentary is that it is not preachy, rather, we merely sit back and listen to people's individual life experiences and stories. There is a rich pallet of ideas as we hear people's frank and personal opinions about God, Religion, and how they see the world around them.

This documentary consistently remains thoughtful, never breaks into a sermon, but lets us think and come to our own conclusions. Instead of trying to force the concepts on us, we learn from others, and as God would have it allows us to freely make the choice to come to Him. This film is more about a discourse than any one specific message, but if it has a message it is that we all are wonderful and unique as human beings."
Not what I expected
Debora Lynn | Athens, Ohio USA | 08/24/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Definately not what I expected. Lots of poignant questions, but not much in the way of thoughtful answers. They asked the cast and crew of The Passion questions about their religious beliefs. Do you believe in God? Do you believe in Heaven? Do you believe in miracles? And many more such questions. Many answers were brief or vague or unrelated to the question at hand. However, there were a few thoughtful answers worth listening to. Much of the film was artsy filming, a lone dog wandering around in a scenic area, sunsets, that sort of thing. Overall, I have to say I didn't get much from it, although someone else might. I doubt if I would watch it more than once."
