period: Jesus


Yet another standard mini-series about the life of Jesus: this one featuring Debra Messingas Mary Magdalene, Jacqueline Bisset as Mary, and Elena Sofia Ricci as Herodias.

As usual with the endless Biblical productions most of the cast, apart from the central figure, have little on which to hang their characterisations - though here Gary Oldman swims strongly against the tide as Pontius Pilate.
