    • Synopsis
    • For the first time, the Passion of Christ is shown in the refined language of ballet performed by the most qualified dancers of La Scala theatre. The universal language of dance is a way to express a new vision of Christ as a Man, together with the highest expression of Humanity beyond religion.
      The movie aims at creating a dialogue between religions and believers/non-believers/philosophers. From the Last Supper to Crucifixion and Resurrection: the Passion of Christ is conceived as a key to interpret the touching existential experience of each man.
      Only few hours have passed between The Last Supper and the Crucifixion. In those hours Christ taught us all we need to know to reach His world and His life.
      “This is the impression I got while staring at Leonardo da Vinci's 'The Last Supper' in the ancient refectory of the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. I envisioned that if Jesus Christ had raised his face, he would have seen himself crucified in Donato Montorfano's 'Crucifixion', a magnificent fresco located exactly in front of Leonardo's masterpiece. Suddendly time would have been compressed…and so it happened: that moment turned into a prayer. This is what I felt." said the director Andrea Forte Calatti
