The Gospel According To St. Matthew

A totally original Italian version of the story of Christ, using only the words and scenes described by St Matthew. Director Pasolini, an avowed marxist and atheist, portrays Christ as a determined revolutionary. Breathtakingly combines non-professional actors, magnificent locales and unique direction.
