Product description

Product Description

The Jesus Of Nazareth DVD contains a 270-minute feature length version of the eight-episode television miniseries of the same name. Edited from the original six-hour plus version, the feature plots the epic chronicle of the life of Jesus Christ--beginning with the arrangements for the wedding between Joseph and Mary, through to Jesus's birth, his encounter with John the Baptist, all the way up to the Crucifixion and Divine Resurrection. Directed by Oscar nominee Franco Zeffirelli ("Othello"; "Hamlet") the all-star cast in Jesus Of Nazareth includes: Anne Bancroft; Laurence Olivier; Michael York; James Mason; Rod Steiger; and Robert Powell (as Jesus). The beautiful filming and reverent performances by the international cast add depth and humanity to this very passionate and emotional production.

From Amazon.co.uk

Originally made for TV in 1977, this in-depth version of Jesus' life is so thorough that the first hour is devoted solely to the story of his birth. The film doesn't skimp on some of the other landmark events of this famous story either. Director Franco Zeffirelli gives ample screen time each to the Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Passages of the Bible are quoted verbatim, the locations have a Palestine-like authenticity, and, aside from some of the principals (Robert Powell as Jesus, Olivia Hussey as Mary, and Stacy Keach as Barabbas), many of the non-Roman characters are actually played by Semitic-looking actors. Zeffirelli diligently provides the socio-political background that gave rise to Jesus' following and the crisis in belief it caused for the people of Israel (and one or two Romans). --Kimberly Heinrichs, Amazon.com
