1935, Historic / Epic
This telling of the last days of Jesus Christ (Robert Le Vigan) begins with his entrance into Jerusalem while he is still adored by the public. However, Christ has made powerful enemies by throwing moneychangers out of the temple and giving sermons that place God above all. Ponce Pilate (Jean Gabin) conspires with various leaders to arrest Christ, then gives him a ludicrous trial and sentence of crucifixion. However, as Christ claimed in his teachings, he soon rises from the dead.
