Abstract

With its combination of icon and image, faith and history, this film does not fit the usual genres. But when judged in terms of its own unique filmic canons, The Passion of the Christis a profound piece of cinematography, celebrating for the unbeliever the triumph of humanity over an all-too-common brutality and for the believer a powerful reminder that forgiveness and love of enemies lies at the very centre of Christian faith.
