The Passion of the Christ

I got to see this movie yesterday. I went with Pedro and two of his friends. We got there at 11:30 am since he had to go later to work as usual, and that was the only time he had available.

Well, I’ve always been a very impressionable person when it comes to certain films. This was no exception, and I can really say that this is the most touching movie I have ever seen.

Wow, talking about some work, Mel Gibson did an excellent job in capturing, while at the same time trying not to exaggerate or coming short in displaying what the last 12 hours Jesus spent on this earth must have been like.

I was expecting violence and suffering, but this film without a doubt in my opinion, has given me something unique and special.
