I feel the DVD, though entertaining in its own merits, is not historically accurate. There are a lot of sides to Luther that many books and DVDs leave out including his anger problem, murderous hatred of Jews, Catholics, Anabaptists and anyone else who opposed him, his willingness to eliminate or degrade books of the Bible he felt did not suit his theology and so on.

Please do not rate this review 1 star because you like Luther. Check out the facts for yourselves and then rate it.

As relavent today as it was then, the message of this film is one of being Justified by Faith, although it seems in my opionion to be a worldly production it has'nt really left out the core message that you can't buy savation with money! It is a free gift from God from just you guessed it, Faith in Jesus Christ! This is enough!. Shame on the Romans of the time for turning something Godly into a comercial enterprise through indulgencies while keping the poor in the dark about the truth the Papal church endorsed these indulgences in return for your money you could buy your relitives out of hell and purgotory or even absolve all your sins. Luther was a true child of God. Whom God used to bring light into the darkness and set the captives free from an opressive church which served to keep them in darkness. Luther was used by God to change the world around him which he took full of advantage of using the tools of God; faith, hope,and love! No one is like God, but God can can use us to his ends and luther was a man driven by the desire to bring real truth to the poor and usher in reformation! To understand being a true christian this is a must see movie! The just shall live by faith!

Well, the date being December 27 and with no plans to watch any further movies, I can say this was the best for this year. Being a Charismatic Catholic, I found myself viewing Luther with a very positive light, more then most other Catholics who find themselves looking down on him because of the division in the Church which he brought. I discussed him at length with my friends and the DVD helped me get a warm picture about him, more then I previously held. I really enjoyed watching the DVD because it helped me relate more to Luther. His authentic search for Jesus is evident in the DVD and his phrase "I am yours, save me" struck my heart. Through the DVD, I confirmed my previous sentiments for the reformation. It was a concern for a correct presentation of the bible as the word of God that made Luther protest.

Bought this film at a good price. I opted for the free postage but yet it did not take long and I had the film. The film was great, not probs at all and I recommend this to any one who has a Christian interest or is a committed Christian. It also has a good historical factor about it and I generally thought this was pretty well done.

For many a good film has to have 'high octane'
This film concentrates on an authentic portrayal of the life of an amazing man
Truly inspirational
Very watchable and repeatable
That makes a sound investment!

A bit like 'Amazing Grace'...

The film script authors Camille Thomasson and Gavigan gave the statement, that they tried to be based on the psychobiography (written 1958), in which the scientist Erik H. Erikson analyzed the development and the identity crisis of the human being Martin Luther. Erikson had studied under the eyes of the daughter of Sigmund Freud, Anna. Erikson showed in his famous book, how the rage of Luther against his father developed a rage against church-authorities as well. The fire 1517 AD spread and half of Germany went into a battle against the Pope and his followers in Rome. Many blood was shed. The effect: the right to own an individuality reached acceptance against the usual habit of too much patience and submissiveness. That was the inner drive of the Renaissance's cultural evolution. One can find the origins of this emotional-based idea, that it should be necessary, to reach more independence against the educational usage of that time: The father of Martin Luther very often practiced corporal punishment against his son. Luther tried to set an end to those legal, hierarchical and anti-democratic behaviour attitudes. It was a fight against oppression. An example on which later on the human rights, the constitutional laws of modern states have been developed - spreading the idea not only to church patterns, but bringing it just as well to the basis of democracies all over the world too. Luther has build a thinking-street, on which later on the french revolution or the birth of modern societies could grow. But at first there was the fortitude of a son, who felt the strength in his soul, to make the things different to that way his father (and other authorities) wanted him to go. If you want to know more about this difficult route to find into an individual horizon of life, then read the book of Erik Erikson, on which the film-makers are based ...
