The paper describes the way that the film, "Passion of Christ" starts with a painful prayer from Jesus Christ followed by his disciple Judas betraying him. The author believes that the tortures and beatings of Jesus Christ are shown so intensely that they disturb the viewer's emotions. The paper relates the film's slow, gloomy environment as Christ moves along the path to the Mount of Olives. The author thinks that the most outstanding feature of the film is the portrayal of the human nature of the Son of God, which is beautifully expressed throughout the different emotional incidents.

From the Paper:

"The entire movie moves along a single streak of time expect for the events of Jesus' life and his preaching remembered now and then .The sky, the sun and the moon are used to denote transition of time. Jesus Christ is caught on a gloomy night when he offers prayers to God to free him from the evil. Satan appears and signifies the start of evil. Mother Mary also feels that night to be strange and signifying something evil."
