I think of the time I attended service at a Presbyterian church in Cairo, Egypt - done entirely in Arabic. Our confusion was overshadowed by the message we received.
But then some may misinterpret, especially those who don't know the story that well. You can speak in the same language to some people and they will mininterpret. It can go both ways. Honestly I don't think it will get any type of distribution without subtitles.

I think he ought to put subtitles in, also. In fact, when he showed it to a group in Colorado, several people told him they think he should.

I hope it will end up with subtitles. Even if you know the story backwards and forwards you still want to know what is being said.

Perhaps it would have been best for the film to at least have subtitles, or the option of viewing the film with subtitles to make the film more accessible to people.
I agree to that, people who allready know the full story aren't the only ones who should watch the movie.

But they could do the movie in various languages, at least here in germany you can switch with your tv remote from the translated german to the original language in some movies.

In case anyone's interested, you can see the trailer for "The Passion" here:

It's quite intense...

Wow, that was intense.

This really does look like a movie where we'll need to bring a lot of tissues with us.

BTW, that Jesus movie that was on TV a few years ago (that had Debra Messing play Mary Magdalene), the devil was a woman, too.
What's going on here?

In regards to that article on Mary Magdalene in Mrs. Springsteen's thread, I wonder how Mel Gibson would portray her. She obviously has a big, important role here, and I wonder if Mel would portray her differently than other movies had.

Gosh, I'm so spooked by this

I watched the trailer yesterday - it is quite graphic, and it's so unique to see an "unsanitized" depiction of the Crucifixion. I certainly don't condone any anti-Semitic tones/statements in this film, if they do exist (that's just what I've read in articles/seen on news shows).

I do hope they will put out a version w/ subtitles

Belief.net has been keeping an eye on the movie, and they have been having a feature on it.

Here's a link to one of the articles, and they have a list of other articles about the movie

Thanks for the link

I think Mel Gibson was on the O'Reilly show a few weeks ago, but I missed it..

Ok, that would be really, really cool.

i saw the preview to this movie at the Harvest Crusade 2003. Mel Gibson had videotaped a message to the audience and greg laurie talking about his movie. it was very intense...broke out the tissues. i would have to agree, that this movie does need subtitles. im hard of hearing and i depend on it when i do watch tv or movies. i look forward to this.

I cannot wait for this movie. I've been hearing that it is probably THE most accurate story of Christ ever made. I guess I never knew that Mel was so fervent in his faith....good to know that Hollyweird hasn't run roughshod over *everyone* connected to it.

As much as I enjoy foreign films, and as fascinated as I am to hear the movie spoken in *Christ's own dialect*, I do hope Mel relents and adds subtitles. Most people obviously know the story, but what about those that don't? I think it would be a wise decision on his part. I'm also glad the actors are not well known, which I think would be a big distraction (i.e., Tom Cruise in Interview with the Vampire)

The movie comes out when, around Easter? How appropriate. I *know* it will change lives!
