Il vangelo secondo Matteo

Pier Paolo Pasolini France, 1964

smndvdcl's rating of the film The Gospel According to St. Matthew

A haunting grace envelops Pasolini's adaptation of the story of Jesus. Whether a historical or spiritual figure, Jesus remains a universal icon who evokes a multitude of interpretations. Not since Dreyer's 'Joan of Arc' has a cinematic retelling arrested the senses so unequivocally.
