A beautiful film with beautiful teachings for the little ones of the house.
Of course if you like animated films this one will also love you. VERY WELL WORKED and a nice way to start teaching children who Jesus was.
Recommended for Children's Ministries in the Churches
One of the reasons this film works so wonderfully is that since they are puppets, the viewer is able to accept them as the characters much easier than having Christ done by a human actor. The viewer doesn't have the persona of the actor constantly in the back of his or her mind. Also these figures are really true to the actual racial types than actors in make up and wigs can be. The stop motion animation is wonderfully fluid and realistic.
This is a "Family" film, but that should not put off an adult viewer. The 2 and 3 D animation makes this a wonderfully moving telling of the age old story of Christ. Using 2D animation for the parables and flash backs is a stroke of genius in keeping them in a different perspective than the "actual" story.
This is a brilliantly done recreation of one of the greatest stories ever told (in fact it is much better than the over blown film using that phrase as a title - no Hollywood "names" to distract from the story in this version). No adult should be put off because it is done with "puppets" and animation. It is a beautiful, serious and wonderful telling of the story of Christ.
