Synopsis:

Using dialogue drawn directly from its source material, Pasolini’s stark, realistic retelling of the story of Christ according to the Gospel of St Matthew is perhaps the most faithful, and quietly moving, biblical movie ever made. Drawing on neo-realist techniques such as the use of non-professional actors, location shooting and simple black and white cinematography, Pasolini, a gay, Marxist, atheist, presents Christ as a kind of revolutionary figure, strong of will and utterly dedicated to the common man.
