Storyline

The Body  An ancient skeleton has been discovered in Jerusalem in a rich man’s tomb. Coloration of the wrist and leg bones indicates the cause of death was crucifiction. Other signs, include a gold coin bearing the marks of Pontius Pilate and faint markings around the skull, lead authorities to suspect that these could be the bones of Jesus. Politicians, clerics, religious extremists, and those using terror as a means to an end, find their beliefs and identities tested while risking their lives to unearth the truth.

A very worth while movie

The Body  This movie blew me away the first time that I saw it.

The politics of religion is something that has not been dealt with very well in the movies. This movie does it very well. I found that the reactions to the possible finding of the Christ’s tomb to be intriguing. The Catholic Church has told the investigator that the bones in the tomb ARE NOT the bones of the Christ, whatever he finds out.

Each side in this story wishes to use the bones in any way that will be advantageous to themselves. The reality of the bones is immaterial to all of them.

Christ said that “the truth will set you free.” In this movie it shows that when it comes to politics, the truth is whatever will get people to follow what you want them to follow.

Complex Problem – Good Film

I found the movie to deal with a complex problem involving three faiths. I think it did so very well. If a body was found now, would it ever become public? I doubt it, for the same reasons set out in the movie. Yes, the movie overly simplifies all the faiths involved, and the politics of the existing situation. But if it did not do so the movie would be days long. I was impressed with Banderas’ performance. Think about a priest having his faith challenged by this. That Jacobi would commit suicide demonstrates the hardship of a loss of faith. Again, it is a movie that does not appeal to all people, especially because it deals with really hard issues, on which I am not an expert. But I thought it was well done.
