In his depiction of the life of Jesus Christ, director Pier Paolo Pasolini opts for non-professional actors, casting Spaniard and literature student Enrique Irazoqui as the most famous tragic hero of all time and his own mother as the Virgin Mary. An innovative and anachronistic score comprising Bach and Billie Holiday sets this depiction of the much-told story apart.
