Don't be zoom-in!  May 19, 2010
This is a review of the Region 1 version of Jesus of Nazareth. Another important fact is that this work was produced in 1977. It was directed by one of cinema's most successful European directors: Franco Zeffirelli. Made for television by a cinema director in 1977.

The first thing that struck me upon playing the dvd was how well photographed it is. The colour is rich but not Technicolor. Like paintings, beautifully framed. Do not zoom in on your widescreen television, you will miss significant details or obscure a visual treat. It is a very square framed film. On my surround sound audio the stereo soundtrack was well reproduced with dialogue clear in the centre channel. One irritating omission is the absence of any subtitles. Although most dialogue is clear, just the odd word would have been crystal if I could have accessed a subtitle. The worst case was a minor character, who has just one short speech, early on played by Ralph Richardson - I could not understand a word he said!

I'm going to take a chance with this next analysis: I think there is no definitive version of the whole production because of its political bias. For a perfect reproduction to be sold the sellers would be endorsing a cultural work which promotes individual freedom. There is nothing for the State or established religion in this production.

Partly scripted by Dennis Potter [well known in the UK for Pennies from Heaven [Region 2] and The Singing Detective tv dramas], we see from the beginning how a woman acts upon her own inner belief (Mary looking through a high window), how a man tells young men of "freedom by using your hands" (Joseph as he trains carpenters) and how laws are not carved in stone (ten commandments). They are written in our hearts. One man has no personal creativity, no skill with his hands, he is a user without heart. Educated by the system for the system. The bridge between the followers and the Establishment is Judas Iscariot.

This is 1977, a time of revolution. Even the serene middle classes could give up their job, dig up their manicured lawns and shout out to the world that they could be self sufficient. And be loved. I bought the first series of the comedy Good Neighbors: The Complete Series 1-3 two weeks ago and enjoy watching it very much. Potter's own work on television would see a male protagonist at war with society using the weapons of songs, dreams but most of all: words.

A good story acts against confinement. Little wonder the Bible stayed in Latin for so long. Translated by a man who wanted to divorce his wife. Lawfully.

Of all the acting performances I was stuck by the intensity and thorough characterisation of John the Baptist by Michael York. Chained in a cold, dark, stone, cell he preaches to the revelry above him with as much gusto as by a river in his days without chains. Brilliantly shot from above by the director. This man can not die. Two women conspire to behead him. Wonderful stuff.

I save my final paragraph for the entrance of Jesus. His appearance is mesmerising. The eyes so white. The eyes so blue. The belief so strong. The plan so complete. From the outside to the least successful, a Socialist call. Love your enemies as yourself. Some people must be spoken to. To begin to love yourself.
Blessed!!!  May 10, 2010
This movie has touched me in many ways. it has taught me more about Jesus and it has opened my heart more and has strengthen my faith. This movie teaches us all about Jesus and it also teaches us to have a loving heart.
Good, but could have been better  Apr 29, 2010
Let's start with the good points. The excellent portrayal of emotion and feelings shows Jesus' human nature, while the miracles He performs demonstrate His power over nature as only God the creator of the universe could do. Overall, very watchable and good to see it back to the original two-part setup, rather than the four parts it was later chopped up into (at least, here in the UK). The bad points? First, the video quality as others have mentioned, is not really up to the standard we have become accustomed to. A major movie of this calibre really ought to have undergone some digital restoration before committing it to DVD. Secondly, some of the scenes are not quite true to the historical records given in the gospels. For instance, the transfiguration scene has been reduced to Jesus and His disciples standing round a fire at night; Jesus only carries the crossbeam of his cross (Mat 27:32 says this: As they were leaving, they found a man from Cyrene named Simon, whom they forced to carry Jesus' cross); His wrists rather than His hands are nailed to the cross (both methods were apparently used, but the Bible makes it clear it was Jesus' hands that were pierced); the total darkness for three hours while Christ was on the cross has been reduced to nothing more than a severe storm and there is no mention of the curtain in the temple being "torn from top to bottom" at the time the priests and people would have been celebrating Passover or of the simultaneous earthquake that "ripped open the rocks." To sum up, my overall conclusion is that it is a good movie, but with a bit more attention to detail and with some subsequent restoration, it could have been easily worthy of five stars instead of the four I have given it.
