Shot partly in his own garden in Dungeness, Jarman parallels the suffering of Christ with a latterday passion story about the oppression of homosexuals in modern Britain, linking Christ's impending death loosely with Jarman's own HIV-positive status. The film has an emotional - even spiritual - quality that is both typical Jarman and genuinely transcendant of the normal limits of cinematic art.
