The film focuses on the last 12 hours of jesus' life and begins in the garden of olives where jesus has gone to pray after the last supper. Betrayed by judas, he is then arrested and taken within the walls of jerusalem where the leaders confront jesus and his trial results in a condemnation to death.

"There is enlightenment--even stark poetry--in The Passion.  Claudia Puig, USA Today
"A highly personal, provocative and in some ways riveting vision with an inspired performance by Jim Caviezel as Jesus.  Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"A serious, handsome, excruciating film that radiates total commitment.  Richard Corliss, Time

Editor's Note
THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST depicts the last 12 hours of the life of Jesus of Nazareth (Jim Caviezel), beginning with his betrayal by Judas Iscariot (Luca Lionello) and ending with his crucifixion and subsequent resurrection. Directed by Mel Gibson (BRAVEHEART)--who funded the film himself and co-wrote the screenplay--PASSION uses flashbacks to substantiate a handful of pertinent moments in Jesus' life and teachings, such as the Sermon on the Mount and the Last Supper, as well as his relationships with his mother and his disciples. Still, the drama focuses on the seemingly endless torture inflicted upon Jesus by Roman soldiers at the urging of the Jewish crowd that considers him a blasphemer, despite the attempts of a sympathetic Pontius Pilate (Hristo Naumov Shopov) to spare him from death. The faint of heart should be prepared for the brutal, barbaric beatings that Christ endures. Maia Morgenstern, Monica Bellucci, and Hristo Jivkov are touching as Mary, Magdalene, and John respectively, who are devastated by Jesus' fate yet aware that they can do nothing to change it. Performed in Aramaic and Latin with English subtitles, Gibson's labor of love is sure to prompt discussion and debate as to historical and Biblical fact.

Los Angeles Times
"This is Gibson's personal vision of the greatest story ever told, a look inside his heart and soul..." 02/24/2004 p.1

USA Today
"[T]here is undeniable power and artistry in the filmmaking..." 02/27/2004 p.8E

Entertainment Weekly
"[Caviezel] has an eloquent, spindly body and a gauntly ascetic profile..." 03/05/2004 p.46-7

Rolling Stone
"Gibson's immersion in the blood of Christ is an act of faith filmed with a zealot's rapture." 03/18/2004 p.79

Box Office
"[I]t is Gibson himself, as director, who most energizes the movie, breathing life into the dusty annals of scripture and investigating them with an almost indescribable, elegiac beauty." 04/01/2004 p.160-1

Sight and Sound
"What THE PASSION adds to Gibson's previous directorial offerings is a stripped-down economy of story-telling and a flair for hauntingly iconic imagery which lend an irresistibly visceral edge." 04/01/2004 p.63-4

Premiere
"[U]ndeniably well-made..." 07/01/2004 p.112
