Storyline

It is the year 33 A.D. The Emperor Tiberius is troubled by strange phenomena, an earthquake and the sky turning black as an eclipse. His astrologers give him fair warning: their omens indicate that the world is in the throes of a great upheaval and that old gods have been annihilated. A new kingdom is about to rise in the East. The Emperor calls Tito Valerio Tauro, the most prominent investigator in Rome, back from his exile. He was ostracized years earlier because he had discovered too much regarding the death of the great Emperor Augustus, the predecessor of Tiberius. Tiberius entrusts Tauro with a mission that will require all his talent; should he conduct it successfully, his good name will be completely restored. He must discover the truth regarding the death sentence of a poor Judean rabbi. His name is Jesus of Nazareth and they say he has resurrected from the dead. Tiberius is convinced that it has something to do with the prophecies and the celestial omens that shook the world... Written by anonymous

Goofs

The Roman alphabet consists of capital letters only (no lower case). When Titus writes his letter to the emperor Tiberius he uses a lower case i (with a dot above it). Even the preceding Greek alphabet has the iota without a dot. See more »

Alternate Versions

There are two versions of the film, a theatrical one (112') and a TV one in two parts (190' - 95' each). The extended version premiered on Italian and is available on the Czech DVD edition. The TV version is highly recommended due to its complete script with a larger cast of relevant characters, which increases plot weight and eases the story understanding. Apart of some characters, a few secondary outlines appear despite of the cinema version. Sometimes, the short version seems to be cut off, but some viewer's questions may be shown are fully solved in the most amusing TV version. See more »

Really bad
14 March 2009 | by steven-222See all my reviews

The original movie, made in 1986 and starring Keith Carradine and Harvey Keitel, is a little-known gem of an intellectual thriller, with a plot that takes numerous unexpected twists.

This "remake" (hardly that, since the title, basic premise, and name of the lead character are all that remain) is essentially a Sunday school movie made by hacks, full of pious posturing. It's pretty to look at, but utterly lacking in suspense, narrative drive, good acting, or just about anything else you might desire in a movie.

I am beginning to think that any movie with Valerio Massimo Manfredi's name in the credits is going to be very, very bad.
