An excellent movie that I would recommend to everybody. Roman emperor Tiberius sends a special envoy to Jerusalem to find out the truth: Did Jesus of Nazareth truly rise from the dead? The person he sends, the warrior Tauro (played by the Italian actor Daniele Liotti) although having doubts about the followers of Jesus, starts this inquiry and during its course meets a beautiful woman,Tabitha (in case you wonder, as I did, where do I know this actress? She is Monica Cruz, Penelope's little sister). Like in the plot of Quo vadis, she shows Tauro the door to another world and also the path to salvation. Pontius Pilate is played by Hristo Shopov, who had the same role in Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ..Max von Sydow plays Tiberius,and the actual filming was done at location in Capri, Italy. My favorite actor in this movie was Dolph Lundgren (Rocky IV) as Tauro's German slave. He reminded me of the religious and mythological movies of the 60's...If you're looking for a last minute gift, this could be the one. I bought it for my husband, which, movie-wise, is very hard to please, and he loved it.
