Synopsis:
Internationally hailed by critics as his masterpiece, Pier Paolo Pasolini's The Gospel According to St Matthew is a visually stunning, emotionally stirring film version of the life of Christ, based upon the writings of the apostle Matthew. Pasolini's vision is both deeply religious and determinedly polictical, with the messiah portrayed as a peasant outcast, driven by anger at social injustice. Convincing performances by an entirely non-professional cast, impressive cinematography and an inventive use of music, from Bach to Billie Holiday, combine to great effect in this landmark of world cinema.
