The movie was based not only on scripture, but also on Sister Anne Emmerich's book "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" - which accounts for the differences...

I want to watch it, but I don't, because I know exactly what I'll see. And like you said, it will be like watching "the brutal execuation of a loved one". Not something I'm looking forward to, but this is certainly the season for it.


I'd be the first to tell you the movie is not for everyone. After seeing it we decided the Boy is not ready to watch it, (middle school.) The Girl probably is, (high school), but I would want to be with her if she did. (She originally wanted to see it, but is not decided now that her Dad and I told her how difficult it was to watch.) It was disturbing to have kids in the audience when we saw it.

I know some adults that have decided it's not something they can watch. To be honest, I wouldn't want to see it again very soon. I left the theater emotionally spent.

We have had feedback from others though who've reported that watching it has deepened their faith. Many churches, (mine included), are scheduling counselors to be available at local theaters at the end of showings.
