Mel Gibson's well-publicized production of The Passion of the Christ, concerns the last 12 hours in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The dialogue is spoken in the ancient Aramaic language, along with Latin and Hebrew. In the Garden of Gethsemane near the Mount of Olives, Jesus (James Caviezel) is betrayed by Judas Iscariot (Luca Lionello). Jesus is condemned to death for blasphemy and brought before Pontius Pilate (Hristo Naumov Shopov), the Roman governor of Judea, for sentencing. The roaring crowd demand his death, so Pilate orders his crucifixion. Jesus is severely beaten and made to carry his cross up to Golgotha, the hill outside Jerusalem, where he is nailed to the cross. Romanian theatrical actress Maia Morgenstern plays Mary, Mother of God, and Italian superstar Monica Bellucci plays Mary Magdalene. Considered to be the most biblically accurate version of all films about the passion of Jesus Christ, but also the most graphic and most difficult to watch. Oscar nominated for Best Original Score, Best Achievement in Makeup, and Best Cinematography, with realistic on-location photography in Craco, Matera, Basilicata, Italy.
