Paul, Apostle of Christ - Faith That Moves

Religious films is probably the most complicated films to be made. This is because it has to be precisely balanced to present it characters in portrayals that are not hard-selling religion which makes it spirituality like an advertisement more than message. Paul, Apostle of Christ proved that spiritual films can be artistic and moving.

Produced by Affirm Films, which made Christian Films like Fireproof and Risen, the film shows the fiinal days of St. Paul who has been travelling far and wide to build Christian communities and preach the gospel. Jim Caviezel who played Jesus Christ in Passion of the Christ is St. Luke here which somehow still has his impression of the Messiah without the Aramaic language.

Paul, Apostle of Christ stars Jim Caviezel, Olivier Martinez, James Faulkner, Joanne Whalley, and John Lynch. Showing in cinemas March 23 in SM Cinemas.
