Sometimes my faith feels distant from my life. And then I come across a film such as this. It refreshes my faith, and shows me the story of Jesus in such a way to make it the story of my people, the story of now, the story for any people longing for freedom. Because the film's people are not familiar to me, I have to pay special care to the story, I cannot take for granted what I thought I knew. I must see the familiar tale in new light, I wear the tale as part of my history, and part of my ancestry.

Though highly recommended to me, I didn't like this film. This retelling of the Christ story left me cold.
