About The Gospel According to St. Matthew
The Gospel According to St. Matthew, directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini, is a powerful and visually stunning retelling of the life of Jesus Christ. Released in 1964, the film is a departure from traditional Hollywood biblical epics, with Pasolini opting for a more naturalistic approach that emphasizes the humanity of Jesus and his followers.
Shot in black and white, the film is a stark and uncompromising portrayal of the life of Jesus, from his birth in Bethlehem to his crucifixion and resurrection. Pasolini's use of non-professional actors, including a young man from a poor neighborhood in Naples as Jesus, adds to the film's raw and authentic feel.
The Gospel According to St. Matthew is also notable for its use of music, with Pasolini incorporating traditional Italian folk songs and Bach's St. Matthew Passion into the soundtrack. The result is a haunting and emotional experience that stays with the viewer long after the film has ended.
Despite its unconventional approach, The Gospel According to St. Matthew was a critical and commercial success, winning numerous awards and earning praise from critics around the world. Today, it is considered a classic of world cinema and a groundbreaking work of religious filmmaking.
