The Body (2001)

2001 | Drama | Thriller

Religious and exciting thriller with Antonio Banderas!

An ancient skeleton has been discovered in Jerusalem in a rich man's tomb. Coloration of the wrist and leg bones indicates the cause of death was crucifiction. Other signs, include a gold coin bearing the marks of Pontius Pilate and faint markings around the skull, lead authorities to suspect that these could be the bones of Jesus.

Can you imagine if we found proof that Christ's Resurrection never happened?

The issue of Jerusalem in Middle East peace, the role of modern politicians in achieving (or denying) that peace, and the influence of history on our future are all addressed, albeit sometimes with shallowness. This movie has intrigue, action, and thought-provoking subject matter.
