Until you've heard it in the original Hebrew.

Film Just in case anyone missed it, here is that excellent Japanese poster for The Passion of the Christ. It's worth investigating to see how a film which fits within one very specific idiology might be marketed in a country were that ideology is, if not entirely alien, not the norm. It reminds me somewhat of the posters which cropped up for the revival of Lloyd-Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar in which the actor playing the messiah stood in a crowded street, although in that case the image was the best thing about the whole ferrago. On the basis of this I'm tempted to go look at the film again. [via]
