Описание: По роману Пара Лагерквиста в адаптации Джузеппе Берто и Иво Перилли. Библейская легенда о воре и убийце Варавве, которого помиловал Понтий Пилат. Блестящий эпический фильм с религиозными реминисценциями. (Иванов М.)
Рецензии: This film is not much from Hollywood since this was made in cooperation with the Italians. Nevertheless, it can be categorized to all classical movies, like Cleopatra, Quo Vadis, Ben Hur, or Spartacus. What is there that makes this film so similar in style?
I think that first of all, it is a fantasy based on pure history. These two worlds integrate together. The story of Barabbas is strongly linked to the times of the 1st century, the beginnings of the christian faith and the cruel reign of ceasars, esp. Nero. Par Lagerkvist, the author of a book "Barabbas", which got the Noble Prize in 1951, showed Barabbas as someone who does not believe, but the light of Christ is present in his soul from the moment he was set free and Jesus crucified. This spiritual content of the movie and the book is critical. Barabbas experiences the struggle within his heart. "Love one another" somehow unconsciously rings in his mind. This is beautifully showed by Richard Fleischer in the movie.
Another aspect that makes the film similar to great, classical productions are the monumental scenes, especially those of the arena. Barabbas fight as a gladiator with the bravest of Rome, and wins...
I like this movie. It is a profound film, with a wonderful message. Even if you are not much aware of Christ, He is within you. The story of Barabbas, if true or not, also calls my attention the fact that everything in our lives has a MEANING! NOTHING IS MEANINGLESS! Good movie!
