Have you ever wondered what Jesus did as a young boy? The story of Christ's childhood has never before been told on television. Filmed on location in Tunisia, the Italian TV production A Child Called Jesus mixes Scripture with speculation. It attempts t

This Italian production, first released in the U.S. in the late 80's is a great family film, first-off. Also, though it does not draw from biblical accounts so much as Gnostic Gospels, it still manages to show Jesus' humanity as well as give us glimpses of his destiny with visions the boy has at key moments. The movie is dubbed well and that does not detract from its beauty.

The characters were non-American/familiar and seemed more realistic. I loved the character child Jesus played by Matteo Bellina which gave a glimpse into what Christ's childhood may have been like, and the movie also showed another side of what his parents went through while raising Jesus. I saw it years ago on TV and have always wanted it; I believe it is one of the most powerful biblical movies ever to help raise the consciousness and the soul; now that the internet is available basically any movie you want can now be purchased.

When my son was small, I stumbled upon this movie on tv. I didn't remember the name, and found it recently through a chance search on Amazon. I was thrilled to come across it again. The story brilliantly and imaginatively fills in the blanks missing from the bible about what Jesus's childhood might have been like, how he was divinely different from every other child, and how his mother Mary dealt with having such a special child. Wonderful movie for the whole family.

I saw this movie on TV 15-20 years ago (or longer) and fell in love with it. I waited for it to come on again, but when it did I missed the showing. To my knowledge it never was shown again. I am not computer savy so never thought on looking on line until about 4 months ago when talking with someone who uses Amazon all the time and suggested I try Amazon. It met all my expectations and will watch it especially during the Xmas and Easter holiday seasons.

I remember watching this two-part miniseries originally made for Italian TV on WPIX 11 back in the late 80s. It seemed then to be a fairly well-known and well-regarded movie but appears to have fallen into obscurity since it originally aired. Be forewarned that although the movie is listed as being in English, it's actually dubbed; sometimes it's barely noticeable, but sometimes it seems like Godzilla is about to show up. Due to the fact that the film was not originally in English, the dubbing occasionally loses something in the translation and lends itself to some bizarre turns-of-phrase. The DVD contains no extras (I would have liked the original ads from WPIX to be included, for instance); both parts of the miniseries are included on the same side of the disc, so be forewarned that at one point, the movie will appear to be restarting about halfway through. The picture quality is so-so; actually, it looks very much like it did on WPIX back in the 80s, which doesn't look good on a contemporary HD flatscreen. As for the story, it's an interesting take on the life of Jesus, portrayed here as a pretty typical 7-year old who is nevertheless aware that he is anything but. The plot follows the Holy Family's travels through Egypt and Palestine, evading a mystic who is obsessed (for seemingly no reason) with finishing the job that Herod started and killing Jesus. There are many interesting ideas scattered throughout the film (such as Jesus' visions of his future, bringing to mind Paul Atredies in the Dune novels) and the Holy Family is the heart of the story. A religious audience may enjoy this film very much; a secular audience might find it merely interesting. A Child Called Jesus is a cut above the usual low-rent production qualities of this sort of movie, but it's got nothing on Cecil B. DeMille.

This was an excellent DVD. I know that the story line was speculative but was well written. The young actor portraying Jesus was heart warming. The best movie of the possible events of the early years of Jesus.

for this to become public. First saw it on PBS WGBH Boston in the late 80s. It did not become public till now! Beautiful and perfect Life of Christ up to the return of the Holy Family to Jerusalem.
