A brand new adaptation of the greatest story ever told - the birth of Jesus Christ... Mary counts her blessings when her parents arrange to marry her to a local carpenter, Joseph. He has a good heart, but when she falls mysteriously pregnant, he can't accept her explanation. He must, however, set aside his anger, to save her life - by allowing her to travel with him to a faraway town... Bethlehem. The tyranny of Herod, search of the Magi, and the Earthly troubles of the lowly shepherds are all explored in this visually stunning film. It renders beautifully a classic tale and reveals that behind the traditional, there is a universal and very human story. A story of two people: a young, scared girl with a momentous role in history and the kind man who loves her. This unique take on the story of the Nativity explores the troubled times of turn-of-the-millennium Judea, bringing legend to vibrant life.
Brilliant film giving an insight into society in the 1st C and what real people's lives were like. It was wonderful to see the wise men from the east working out that something wonderful for the whole world was going to happen.
