Dividing Bar

Alice Guy-Blaché's La vie du Christ is a filmed passion play, or passion pantomime; this has more in common with the 1914 Italian silent historical epic Cabiria, where they invented the tracking shot. No life-of-Christ film can touch Pier Paolo Pasolini's marvellous The Gospel According to Matthew, and as religious films go, this one isn't up to Sant Tukaram, Prince of Egypt or indeed Salesman and Lotte Reiniger's The Star of Bethlehem. On its own terms, however, it's a major achievement: big, kitschy, over-the-top entertainment using the best technology of its time.
